Notes on a Summer

    The series covers brief moments and rippled memories of an archetypal Italian summer, recorded at different locations across the country. Summer in Italy, is the season when nature offers its best, and it is by chasing that vivid mirage that most people go through the year, in the hope that such sensational sights, smells and sounds can be repeated every year. The collected fragments try to interpret the symbolic meaning of such season and the feeling of longing often attached to it. From nudes referencing a mythical youth, to crumbling architecture and luxurious natural details, it is a concoction of themes that renders the idea of a season caught in between a suspended dream and a vigorous, tactile sensuality.
