My research is focused on the Mediterranean. By reading this "liquid" territory I aim to reestablish a contemporary vision of this geography, taking account of the elements of today's most influential geo-political issues, mirrrored in its landscape.
The key elements standing at the base of my research are the landscape and demography, manifested in this liminal territory where the present clashes and overlaps with the past. 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.
