There are some places where time seems to have stopped,and in those places the power of photography to stop time becomes magic.Those places are ancient villas and castles,sumptuous theaters,disquieting asylums and giants of industrial archeology,all united by being abandoned and keeping their charm. I have been hunting for these places since five years,traveling all around Italy looking for this beauty,to be able to eternalize it with my photographs.Many difficulties between asphalt,mud and dust,but when you are inside every efforts disappears:it's just you and her,the great abandoned beauty.
