The project “I do not want to desappear” aims to recovery the meaning of the words “Ghost” meant as apparition, a supernatural presence that shows itself through nature. A flutter, a sky full of stars, a flap, the wind between wildflowers. The artist still works on diptychs and female figures, as she has done in her latest projects, following the idea of comparing different elements, in this specific one nature and soul, the spirit of dead women: blurry images reveal their stories, hidden in the cosmos, that the audience is invited to guess.

My work is bound up in an ambiguous and cinematic image-making that borders the real and the fantastic. My approach to photography provokes contemplation and reconfiguration of common place subjects via playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny. Born in Lucca, I learned to see photographically during my travels around the world. I studied photography with training courses at Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence to qualify my knowledges.
