Salento Moderno

Salento Moderno

Salento Moderno

An Inventory of Private Houses in Southern Puglia

The eccentric and singular dwellings of Salento, a little piece of suburban earth in Southern Puglia, form an unique architectural panorama. While one could categorize these post-WWII family houses as kitsch or ‘horror shows’, the three photographers and two historians behind Salento Moderno decided to look upon this non-conform suburban terrain with a rather different perspective: as a many-sided architectural phenomenon mirroring the innermost dreams of their inhabitants, expressing their desires to leave their archaic life in poverty behind for a better life etched in concrete. Thus, the photographs of Salento’s private houses come with a great attention to the details, tucked away corners, swinging lines, floating forms, wild converging shapes and colors while exploring an architectural clutter which is as diverse as Southern Italy’s history.
