Il silenzio della città fotografie Roma 1993 – 1997

A test and a proposal lie at the heart of this photographic project, which aims to regain from the chaos of routine an impalpable time that can lend qualities to certain places and situations taken from reality – normal reality, not exceptional events or specific places but life going on, evenings like any other – interrupting the tumultuous flow of the city to make room for potential harmony, achieved by valorising the urban environment and the situations that emerge from it; a harmony inseparable from the recovery of an aesthetic sense that, for the author, lies at the base of a better quality of life, and which these images evoke by means of a style expressed in the rhythm we give ourselves, an action that pleases us, a slower and more attentive gaze: that of photography.
