My name is Davide Sasso, and I am a photographer with a passion for animation. I love the animation of all kinds, but in particular Japanese animation is the one that is closest to my heart and that undoubtedly inspired me as a photographer.

These series of photos, taken in various parts of Italy, such as Rome, Florence, and Venice, are inspired by Japanese anime. Both regarding colors, composition, and mood, Japanese animation was a great inspiration.

In particular, I was inspired by the colors of the films by Makoto Shinkai.

His films are set in Japan, unfortunately now I do not have the chance to go there, so I tried to recreate those colors and that mood here in Italy.

I hope I can go to Japan as soon as possible, to be able to do this kind of photography there.

Italy is a beautiful country; I recommend you visit if you have the opportunity!
