Orto Botanico di Palermo

After the inauguration of ‘Mamma Perdonami / Mëma Më Fal’ at the Museo Civico di Castelbuono, the Sicilian artist’s video work, produced by Fondaziona Studio Rizoma, will move to Rome at the Museo delle Civiltà and will be on show in Palermo for a few days.

On 4 July at 7:00 pm, the installation will be inaugurated at the Orto Botanico as part of the Metamorfosis Festival! The presentation will be followed by a debate with the artist.

‘Mamma Perdonami / Mëma Më Fal’ is a poetic re-appropriation of the long unspoken political legacy of the peasant republic established in the 1940s in Piana degli Albanesi, Sicily. With a video installation, Genny Petrotta, together with a group of young people from his hometown, revisits this important episode.

The project is produced by Fondazione Studio Rizoma in co-production with Autostrada Biennale Prizren. In collaboration with Museo Civico di Castelbuono, Genía Lab Art Palermo, Postane Istanbul, Inland Madrid, Museo delle Civiltà Roma and European Alternatives Paris.

The project is supported by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture under the Italian Council program (12th edition, 2023), which aims to promote Italian contemporary art worldwide.
