The carnival. Symbolic turning point in the life cycle of human lives. Renewal, transformation, deep need to be regenerate... In Offida, Italy, this act take place every year. The fire runs throughout all the streets of the city to get into the main square. Every inhabitant is participating in this ritual of purification until the whirling community dance around the large central bonfire.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
