Cindi Emond Past Present Future, L’Arte che Scompare

Cindi Emond’s four-part series, Past Present Future, L’Arte che Scompare, the disappearing arts, is an exploration of extinguishing cultural arts in Italy, some of which are recognized by UNESCO. The emerging forces of change lead to the disarticulation of cultures, rituals and mythologies. It is not nostalgia, but pride of place that has to inspire us to keep these traditions alive. The fragility of these arts must be documented and shared, as this environmental portraiture represents Italian heritage, the persistence of cultural traditions and national identity.
