G. Meloni, G. Peghin: Travels in Sardinia - Through the Mines of Iglesias
‘Voyages en Sardaigne (Travels in Sardinia)’ is a collection of unconventional thematic guides on this island in the middle of the Mediterranean. They offer to the reader different ways of observation and restitution of its territory, always characterized by an uncertain temporality: the present and the past merge to build a unique landscape, far from the convulsive setting of the contemporaneity.
‘Nelle miniere di Iglesias / Through the Mines of Iglesias’ is the first part of an exploration that focuses on soil, excavations, incisions, mutations, transpositions and silence of Sulcis-Iglesiente, a territory marked by an industrial history. A wandering through time and space of a region «built», transformed, crossed by different types of works, infrastructures, relationships between things. These signs, these scars, are today the distinctive features of an extraordinary mining landscape. A space to discover through visual and textual narration.
