40 anni positivi

It’s been 40 years since the first newspaper article about an unknown disease that would later be identified as AIDS, the human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

It was first noticed in June 1981, when the CDC in Atlanta recorded suspected cases of pneumonia in five gay men in Los Angeles.

In July 1981, the New York Times reported on a strange syndrome affecting 41 men during the year. 40 years after that article, an exhibition at Frigoriferi Milanesi retraces the history of this pandemic, which has lasted four decades.
