The project was born with the desire to put in metaphorical images how, in Italy, a period like the one that has passed and still in existence, may have changed our relationship with elements and values that we have always taken for granted in our life or on which, probably, we should begin to reflect again. Covid is the background, the necessary condition. Prisoners of ourselves, fearful, we have perhaps forgotten the courage to live and die (natural conditions of the human being), and the courage to claim collective freedom even before personal freedom.

Born in Rome, graduated in economics, but passionate about visual arts and history. I try to express reflections and questions both on man and on society through photography.
