In front of my lens, carpeted in the shadows, astonishing giants of wood and cast iron display their beauty. The only witnesses of the past years, these pianos are the soul of the place. Objects too heavy to be moved that I have been tracking relentlessly for more than 10 years.

When you discover the instrument in these ruined places, you imagine stories, and the piano imposes itself with all its nobility. This photographic work that I have been doing since 2008 offers me the privilege of combining my two passions: image and music. This quest for forgotten pianos has taken me to many European countries and I found more than 100 different pianos. I present here the pianos I was able to photograph in Italy between 2014 and 2020.
