I traveled to Italy to create a project that narrates the stories of various abandoned sites throughout this country.
Turning your own city it's not difficult to discover many neglected places. I decided to examine and revive the glory of villas, churches, castles and hospitals, which were abandoned by all, even by memories.
I have embarked on some extensive travels throughout Italy, looking for places full of stories, places that have been inhabited and then left to an oblivion, to the domain of dust.
The result has left me shocked. I could not imagine the charm and beauty of some of the places I've discovered along the way.
Houses still furnished, where you can almost hear the sounds of the past lives. Large frescoed rooms that give a sense of glory and majestic evenings. And abandoned psychiatric hospitals, full of emotions and experiences of the distinctly different spectrum.
It's hard to put into words the emotions that pervade when I cross the threshold of these places. I created this photographic project in order to transmit to viewers a feeling of awe, wonder and surprise, all mixed with a turmoil of sadness. Then these sites will come back to life, only in our imagination.
