Annalisa Natali Murri – A Respectable Family (The Murri’s Affair)

Annalisa Natali Murri

A Respectable Family (The Murri’s Affair)


This project comes out from my urge to put back together the pieces of an infamous story that has accompanied my family since September 2nd, 1902. That day Linda Murri, daughter of my great-grandfather, had her husband, count Bonmartini, stabbed to death in his house in Bologna. For this crime my great-grandfather Tullio, Linda’s brother, was unjustly accused and served a sentence several years in prison, marking the life of my family forever. This ongoing project, centered in identity, intimacy and memory, roots itself in my own family archives, official documents and other family heirlooms, and aims to preserve the thread between past and present: my wish is to recover connections within my own family heritage, inquiring about memory and how the events experienced by my ancestors have been affecting subsequent family generations, including myself.
