Rome reminds me of a man who lives by exhibiting to travellers his grandmother’s corpse – J.Joyce
Rome, city of the spiritual and political power, art city and broken dreams. The capital is living a complex historical period, hostage to misrule and corruption. It has built up a debt of around EUR 13 billion over time. The city is getting more tired and neurotic: one citizen in five is over 65 years old and the young people have many difficulties finding a suitable role in the society. Rome reflects historical period of decadence that Italy is experiencing nowadays, omen of a sad implosion. Symbol city rich in symbols.
My work is a travel of the personal research of those symbols , which represent the fragments that make up the framework of the condition and fate of Rome.
