This work is a journey into my daily landscape, to smaller places - areas where changes take place slowly and where ties to the past are evident.
The series is the result of an exploration of the northern area of Lazio, where I was born and where I live. This territory, located on the borders of Rome, has undergone, like many other Italian provinces, many changes over the years, mainly due to the transition from the agricultural model to the industrial one.
The series aims to investigate the characteristic aspects of the places and its transformations creating images in balance between the real landscape and its representation.
