I'm an Italian photographer and two years ago, in 2020, I had great difficulties in taking pictures due to the pandemic situation and a deep lack of motivation. So I decided to begin a 365 Project in 2021 to have a reason to go out and shoot: I shot and posted a photo every day for 365 days to have a visual diary of that year, for me a year of rebirth.

It was not easy to take a (nice) photo every single day of the year but I succeeded. Not every image is actually good but that's okay. During last year I (re)learned to keep my eyes wide open, and now, after 365 days, I'm finally ready to fill my eyes again with love and wonder.

Day 2

Everyone in Rome knows how magic is a flock of starlings that paints figures in the sky (less beautiful is when you leave your car under a tree where they “rest”, but it’s a different story). I didn’t see starlings for a long time and I was very happy today when I’ve seen a flock above my eyes.

Day 9

“This precise moment in time as seen from the future.” It’s funny because I often think about how I’ll see these months one day, in the future, and I don’t really have an answer. I always see the past with a nostalgic eye, thinking about all the possibilities I had, all the roads I could have taken. But these are just mind games, nothing else.

This street artwork always makes me think of a poem by Walt Whitman, where he said: “Day by day and night by night we were together – all else has long been forgotten by me”. But we often find it paraphrased in this famous quote: “We were together. I forget the rest.”
