Showroom Luceplan, Milan

Twenty-one photographs in Milan for Luceplan, with an introduction by Emilio Tadini. “.. these photographs by Basilico represent a city at night. There is nothing surprising about the absence of human figures in a city in the middle of the night. What, however, does not seem natural at all, is the spectacle of numerous interior lamps arranged in the streets and square of a city in the middle of the night, wrenched with such calm violence from their contest and made part of a landscape as unreal as it is enthralling, what do these lamps actually illuminate? Where does their light fall?”.
