My work reflects on the notions of identity and place by investigating small communities and minorities rising in confining territories, liminal places where the edges of cultural, political and social separations overlaps.
The key elements standing at the base of my research are landscape and demography.
By associating these to the instruments of document and collective memory I strive to propose a number of possibilities to alternatively read the contemporary landscape.
