A new Order, Berlin Diary

Berlin Diary is a research that documents the margins of society, an investigation into different worlds including relationships, the loneliness of the human being, alcoholism and abuse, lovers and their conflicts, the nightlife and in the end the relationship between people and city.

Another Day

Another Day is a diary, a collection of images and a long-term research. In this space the city of Rome is documented through stories of places and people. An investigation into different worlds, in a society where relationships, private moments, loneliness, abuse, love, nightlife, music and artists are explored , and finally investigates the relationship between certain people and the city.

Beyond the Borders

First time I came to Lampedusa, 3 years ago, I documented the arrival of 20.000 immigrants escaping from their homeland thorn apart by war and riots. What really hit me during my stay was the reaction of locals while they were assisting at this invasion. These people, during the past 20 years, have been welcoming desperate human beings in search for a better life with solidarity and silence. Lampedusa inhabitants are a small community that showed me great respect for uman dignity and how it is possible to pursue pacific coabitation. These islanders are simple people, with souls deep as their sea, that fronted the desperation of the immigrants not with fear, but with an helping hand.
