Maybe because it's where I was born and where I spent most of my life, but I never found it too exciting having to do with my own city and its people, in all respects, shooting included.
This project is for me to learn what it is that really catches my eyes when I wander around the city I live in. I imposed myself to start this study, and to keep it open and ongoing, in the hope, one day, my city and I will start getting along together better.
PS: I deliberately kept out of my framing those visual elements that make my city immediately recognisable, because they could interfere with my pictures, thus conveying a message I didn't mean.

I shot this one while visiting the Museum of Else and Elsewhere, in the suburbs of Rome. I didn't find anything that impressed me much in there. Until I saw this.
PS: the two guys are not part of the exhibition, and neither is the sofa.
A Black Comedy
The street artist represents the Ego. His shadow is the ES. The bystander's shadow is the Super-Ego. And the magic box is the artist's right brain creativity container.
I came across this urban Jesus. Don't know why he's carrying his umbrella on a blue sky day. Why is he clenching his fist? Or is he holding something?
This is Garbatella, a peculiar neighborhood in central Rome, originally conceived for workers housing, in the '30s, Now it's a hidden treasure, where time seems to stand still.
"Sorry Sir, no shooting at this time. And no time to have fun. I'm teaching her how to make fresh pasta for tagliatelle. Our way, I mean. And this is a very serious matter." That's what she told me.
