Sandro Rafanelli. Silent cry

Until 5 February 2010, the Grand Café Giubbe Rosse, historic cafes of Florence, offers the monographic exhibition of the Florentine artist Sandro Rafanelli.
Title of Exhibition: Silent Cry, expresses the will of the photographer to give voice and visibility to the "strange creatures" of graffiti, who meet casually in the cities, and that those walls, underpasses, subways. These fun characters, ironic but sad, are small works of art that liven and brighten up the gray areas of the city, and the artist with his shots, he wants to talk about this world in the shadows, and figures that accompany us during the day, while we go home or go to work. Figures that make us smile, and sometimes startling, but which end up becoming familiari.Gli take pictures of Rafanelli, restless reinterpret these figures that populate the city, and the requirement to capture this little world to find their space, and especially the great desire to communicate.
Maybe are the voice of those who create, and express impatience, controversy had been addressed, but this show is like if you get rid of the city, to become autonomous and living creatures, in search of their reality. The photographs captures the nuances and feelings that are hidden in the city, in the slums of Rome, in the streets of Florence and Barcelona.
