Rome, March-April 2020. Italy was the first country in Europe to impose a lockdown when coronavirus cases began to surface in northern regions in February. In the limited lockdown’s space the only possible horizon was what we could see from our windows or terrace, living in social distancing. So, many unusual places was inhabited and populated by people, presences and situations always new, almost out of time. We lived within a constructed space of temporal loss. I took one picture per day from rooftop of my apartment, close to the Spallanzani Hospital, the First Italian Covid Centre.
