More than one hundred photographs make up the book Il Teatro Sospeso. Dancing locked-down: a story in images that traces the period when live performances were suspended due to the pandemic emergency. Shots of places and vacancy amongst the light of rebirth and transformation. «Defined as a "non-essential service", theater has struggled to survive, finding new forms of entertainment.  The Suspended Theater presents a year of stills, with a personal vision that tries to confirm - quoting Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - that "the essential is invisible to the eye".
