Storefront for Art and Architecture
For Columbus Day, Lorenzo Romito and other members of research group Stalker Lab will transform Ring Dome into the embassy of Gallo Matese, a small town in the south of Italy. In the mid-20th century, half the population of Gallo collectively emigrated to New York. Fifty years later, Stalker have set out to reconstruct the town’s history, house by house, and reconnect the town’s current inhabitants with their long-lost neighbours by developing a complex online archive of memories and annotations. For Performance Z-A, the current mayor of Gallo and members of Stalker will present the archive to the ex-inhabitants and interview them on their memories of the town.
