This project (altered archival family pictures + digital photography) is about a house in the Italian countryside, the place where I used to spend the summer during my childhood. 

When my grandfather died the house remained completely abandoned during many years due to family issues.

My parents finally inherited it, so had the chance to go back to the place, where I stumbled upon a book with a dedication written by my grandmother:

"…may this memory be always with you". 

I used some titles of the summary of the found book to create my own narrative, which aim, through my personal memories, to describe the human experience of  the emotional attachment for a place.

I. SOUVENIRS D'ENFANCE (2016): 

Old pictures of my grandmother and her sister's childhood and youth that I found in the family house and altered though digital-manipulated interventions.

II. TRAVAIL SPIRITUEL (2011-2016):

A journey between the past and the present, revising old pictures and confusing them with new ones, blending memories and expectation.

III. LA GUERRE (2016):

Notes about the attempt to bring the house back to life and the permanent contradiction between the struggle against decadence and the fascination with it.
