The thread and the river is a photographic story dedicated to the Po and the territories that it crosses, consisting of about fifty photographs taken by Paolo Simonazzi between 2013 and 2021. The protagonist is the slow and heavy flow of the river, which also appears when not photographed directly: its presence emerges in the surrounding landscape and in the people who inhabit the places crossed by its waters. Territories united as by a thread, part of a world that in reality no longer exists, and of which the author - in the wake of a photographic tradition that begins after the war - gives us the last traces, inviting us to listen to what Francesco Zanot calls the feeble song of a supra-territorial territory, on the attack of political geography, clinging as it is to the shaky line of water for hundreds of kilometers.
