Giovanna Silva is a photographer and publisher. Trained as an architect, she works through travel, exploring cities and their recent histories with her camera. Silva will discuss her books, in particular the series Narratives, which gets its title from the personal narratives of the nineteenth century and is based on her exploration of war-torn places. She is currently working on a volume about Rome, as seen through the walks she took through the city with local resident-guides.

Silva is the 2020 ENEL Foundation Italian Fellow in Architecture, Urban Design, and Landscape Architecture.

This event, to be presented on Zoom and held in English, is free and open to the public. The start time is 6:00pm Central European Time (12:00 noon Eastern Time).
