EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Father and son traveling on a pickup truck loaded with caged chickens" by Achille Beltrame, tells a tragic yet miraculous story. The image portrays a father and his young son embarking on a journey in their pickup truck, which is heavily laden with cages filled with chickens. Little did they know that this ordinary trip would take an unexpected turn. Tragically, as the duo approached a level crossing near Varano (Ancona), disaster struck. A locomotive collided with their vehicle, resulting in the untimely demise of the father. However, amidst the chaos and devastation, something extraordinary occurred. The young boy desperately clung to one of the chicken cages caught between the lights and buffers of the train but managed to miraculously save himself from harm. Beltrame's illustration was originally created for Courier Sunday on April 12th, 1931. It captures both the dramatic nature of this incident and highlights themes such as escape and survival against all odds. This powerful artwork serves as a reminder of life's unpredictability while showcasing humanity's resilience in times of adversity. It also sheds light on Italy's transportation system during that era when railways played an integral role in connecting communities. The juxtaposition between tragedy and hope within this image evokes deep emotions within viewers while emphasizing our innate desire for freedom – symbolized by both man-made vehicles like cars and trains alongside wild animals yearning to break free from their cages.
