The View From Lucania is proud to present SUDARIO NUMERO ZERO, the first self-produced zine dedicated to Southern Italy that hosts some works from photographers and artists based in the South, story tellers of their land. SUDARIO will be periodically and will explore, with different languages in each issue, a part of Italy unmistakably controversial and stratified. SUDARIO The word ” sudario” originally meant a thin piece of cloth used by Roman soldiers to wipe off sweat.
Later, it was used to refer to the mourning shroud covering the body of a deceased person and eventually it became semantically synonymous with The Holy Shroud, the cloth in which the body of Jesus Christ was wrapped after his death. Irrespective of any historical context, the word and its meaning are inextricably linked to the concepts of absorption, suffering, spirituality and threshold.
Using these terms as points of reference in its research, TVFL chose the word “sudario” as the title for its collective work. “Sudario” is a sort of cultural blanket, which, from time to time, is laid across the various areas of southern Italy, absorbing its most striking and axiomatic features revealing its shadows, stains, folds and moods.
