This first event Underground/Ecology invited Timothy Morton and Federico Campagna to explore the meaning of ecology, understood as the ontological terrain underlying all human and non-human forces. By redefining ecological thinking through the philosophical models of Dark Ecology and Magic, this session will focus on the fundamental reality-systems that constitute the true underground of the world, ultimately shaping our visible and invisible environment.
Le Quattro Volte by Michelangelo Frammartino was screened following the discussion. A poetic vision of the revolving cycles of life and nature, the film depicts a soul moving through four successive states of being.
With the support of The Showroom and Libellula Productions.
