SanArtLAB: art and culture beyond healthcare

Milan, 5 - 29 May 2016

The historical and social impact of modern immigration on healthcare. The new pilgrims. (3rd stop)

The third stop of the travelling exhibition "The new pilgrims" was hosted in the splendid setting of the Bramante Cloister in Milan from 5 to 29 May 2016.

The exhibition is a journey through images to discover the reality of immigrants in terms of their relationship with Italian healthcare. A journey to places of illness and treatment to tell the stories of a humanity that not only encounters discomfort, distance and diversity, but also hospitality, solidarity and fraternity. The photographs thus reflect a reality far from stereotypes and prejudices: first and foremost the greatness and humility of people.

The exhibited photos were taken by Alessandro Scotti, Edoardo Delille and Umberto Fratini, coordinated by Costantino Ruspoli and supported by three young photographers, Irene Carmassi, Marcella Magalotti and Giulia Piermartiri, who were given the opportunity to work alongside the three professional photographers "in the field".

The exhibition was presented for the first time in November 2015 in Rome at the Galleria del Cembalo, and subsequently in Palermo at the Diocesan Museum. It has obtained the patronage of the Ministry of Health and also the patronage of the Sicilian Region in Palermo, Regional Councillorship of the Family, Social Policies and Labour (Special Immigration Office).
