A Project of Photographic Analysis and Exploration held in the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum.

Rome is drawn within our universal imagination and is inseparable from the outskirts, from which it starts, and which contains, the signs of a deeper Roman identity. Here too, we talk about the “Eternal City,” and here too, the imagery of present-day Rome is strongly intertwined with that of a Rome from the past. The project is articulated through a comparison of different aspects of the city, creating a representation that starts, first and foremost, from capturing details, not just for descriptive purposes but characterized by the ability to symbolize particles of life.

The city is also drawn through contrast, traversed by a line that plays with the contrasts of light and shadow, black and white, further contrasting two different aspects belonging to the same body but unifying them through the same coloring.

The title “Raccordo” (Junction) arises precisely from the idea of a project that gives voice to all the neighborhoods living within the “Raccordo Anulare” (Ring Road). The images have different content but are connected by a continuous flow, by an energy that navigates from one to another as if it were a real junction of movement.
