Non vogliamo emigrare

the 30th anniversary of the November 23, 1980 earthquake in Alta Irpinia, Italy was commemorated with two major photography exhibits in Calitri

Photo-journalist Vito Galgano's images of the procession of Venerdi Santo among the ruins in Calitri cover the first and successive years after the earthquake - the exhibit was sponsored by the 'Confraternity Immacolata Concezione's 300th Anniversary' mounted in the Casa del xEca

Non vogliamo emigrare...1970's anarchic sentiments of a populace no longer willing to leave their villages...

Photographer Vito Galgano worked with Mimmo Jodice in the 1970's & 1980's now teaches in Calitri.
