Operations of the Pierre Auger Observatory
R. Caruso, Andrej Filipčič, Jon Paul Lundquist, Samo Stanič, Serguei Vorobiov, Danilo Zavrtanik, Marko Zavrtanik, Lukas Zehrer, 2022, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The construction of the first stage of the Pierre Auger Observatory, designed for research of ultra-high energy cosmic rays, began in 2001 with a prototype system. The Observatory has been collecting data since early 2004 and was completed in 2008. The Observatory is situated at 1400 m above sea level near Malargüe, (Mendoza province) in western Argentina, covering a vast plain of 3000 squared km, known as the Pampa Amarillo. The Observatory consists of a hybrid detector, in which there are 1660 water-Cherenkov stations, forming the Surface Detector (SD) and 27 peripheral atmospheric fluorescence telescopes, comprising the Fluorescence Detector (FD). Over time, the Auger Observatory has been enhanced with different R&D prototypes and is recently being to an important upgrade called AugerPrime. In the present contribution, the general operations of the SD and FD will be described. In particular the FD shift procedure - executable locally in Malargüe or remotely by teams in control rooms abroad within the Collaboration - and the newly SD shifts (operating since 2019) will be explained. Additionally, the SD and FD maintenance campaigns, as well as the data taking and data handling at a basic level, will be reported

Italian Humanist Photography from Fascism to the Cold War
Martina Caruso, scientific monograph

Abstract: Spanning four decades of radical political and social change in Italy, this interdisciplinary study explores photography’s relationship with Italian painting, film, literature, anthropological research and international photography. Evocative and powerful, Italian social documentary photography from the 1930s to the 1960s is a rich source of cultural history, reflecting a time of dramatic change. This book shows, through a wide range of images (some published for the first time) that to fully understand the photography of this period we must take a more expansive view than scholars have applied to date, considering issues of propaganda, aesthetics, religion, national identity and international influences. By setting Italian photography against a backdrop of social documentary and giving it a distinctive place in the global history of photography, this exciting volume of original research is of interest to art historians and scholars of Italian and visual culture studies.
Keywords: History of photography, documentary photography, social photography, humanist photography, painting, film, literature, anthropology, fascism, antifascism, Mussolini, resistance, partisans, masculinity, peasants, ruralism, religion, Catholicism, Carlo Levi, Christ Stopped at Eboli, propaganda, national identity, aesthetics, politics

My Sister Who Travels
Martina Caruso, exhibition catalogue

Abstract: This exhibition offers the viewer new perspectives on this genre, through the landscapes in the work of six women artists. Landscape art is often considered in Romantic terms. Human analogies between the concrete world and the inner world are frequently drawn, and the open space of the land can be seen as a space for imagining, for thinking freely. But these public spaces are also contested sites, layered with histories and the implicit legacies of control, power, occupation and exclusion.
Keywords: landscape photography, history of photography, 19th century, 20th century, 21st century, women, gender, Mediterranean, video art, Halida Boughriet, Corinne Silva, Paola Yacoub, Noor Abed, Jananne Al-Ani, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, Esther Boise Van Deman, migration, capitalism, patriarchy
