Migrant Eyes and Memories
12/02 - 30/03/2014
Museo di Roma,
Exhibition halls of the ground floor

This photographic exhibition is the culmination of a research project, a collaboration between the Museum of Rome, the association "èarrivatoGodot", CNR and Officine Fotografiche Roma. Rhome begins with a reflection on the identity of the Museum of Rome to start telling the story of the relationship between the city and its migrants.

The sentiment of memory for the places of the city was the inspiring and distinctive element of the Museum of Rome since its opening. It was born in the early decades of the twentieth century for a common and shared desire: fixing the memory of places in Rome that were disappearing in the process of transformation as a result of the early master plans and actions of the fascist period.

In keeping with these purposes, the Museum wanted to listen and give voice to the new citizens of Rome: migrants from all over the world, which are now part of the structural fabric of the capital city and the rest of the country.

In particular, the project Rhome is concerned about the mingant citizens' felleings towards Rome and their memory of the places.
34 people were involved in the project, belonging to the 14 most numerous foreign communities in Rome and to other countries. The reasons for their migration are as numerous as their age, cultures, social class, occupations.

12 photographers, students and teachers of the Associazione Officine Fotografiche Roma, accompanied migrant people in this exciting and challenging journey.
