Restraint - Italian People'S Life In Abeyance

The project aims to visually tell stories of suspended existences, suspended in time and space, still images of a crepuscular Italy, destabilized as never before. People ready to go out who suddenly find their way barred by a window’s glass that symbolically reflects the outside world, made inhospitable by an invisible enemy. As in an aquarium, they are alone, frozen in an apparent stillness, far from a daily life, perhaps hated, which today comes as reassuring. Affective simulacra in which everyone can recognize themselves, their own marginalization and their own battle.
