If you hear the story of Fraele Valley, a couple of thoughts might come to your mind when you walk around its lakes. Within ‘clock’s reach’, things weren’t the same. An entire village of peasants, shepherds, merchants sank into the artificial turquoise when the dams were erected.
I grew up in Bormio, a small town on the Italian Alps. Though I've been living in Bologna over the last six years, where I graduated in oriental studies, I still keep in touch with those roots. In my hometown, as I face its landscapes, I can enjoy the ever-changing silences and the cleanness of spaces. The diversity between this village surrounded by the vastness of mountains and the smoother hills of the city make up the world of my film photography.
