A Sentimental Map of My Neighborhoods
Quartiere Forlanini in Municipio 4, the south-eastern area of Milan, and Quartiere Casoretto in Municipio 3, right above it in the north-eastern part of the city, are my two acquired neighborhoods. These pictures have been taken there, but they are also part of individual works in the making that, at least theoretically, are not necessarily linked to these specific places. For the time being, if shown together, they form a sort of idiosyncratic map of my immediate surroundings: the streets I walk, the buildings I see, the places I go to, the people I cross paths with, in my everyday life. All things that, I begin to suspect, might end up being much more important than any project taking shape in my mind.
