21052 Original copy, a report by Busto Arsizio after Alessandro Galli

It’s Dal 2021 that Alessandro Galli is trying to move to Milan. Now that he has succeeded, he would like to recall with us the years of waiting in Busto Arsizio, the immobility of a province that, faced with the departure of many of its young inhabitants, decides not to change but to always remain the same. Galli’s intention is to reflect on urban decay and the lack of improvements implemented over time. But not only that, Galli’s recordings also contain a special – and strange – kind of beauty, which usually goes unnoticed.

The reflection on the province also branches out in a fanzine published last year that traces all the places where Galli chose to film. There are also five things the photographer says about Busto and what is worth knowing about him. A means that, in addition to the recordings, allows us to go beyond the image, but also a real salute to his city, where – at least in part – he developed his aesthetic taste. Some of the photographs reflect Busto Arsizio’s desire to resemble Milan in meaningful silence. There is the girl standing on her tiptoes, the construction sites, the shops that first open and then close. Even the neglect surrounding the Castellanza train station According to the photographer, it is particularly significant. There are also images that, according to Galli, are “closely linked to his photographic taste,” such as that of Underpass illuminated by a green traffic light Where is he unkempt bush at the entrance to an apartment building in Busto Arsizio.
