I was raised in a little town near Lugano. I remember the day when a roundabout was built to replace an intersection that seemed to be obstructing the increasing flow of traffic. I remember that time as a period of innovation and renaissance for an area that, until then, seemed to my youthful eyes a little unchanged world of its own. Shortly afterwards, the whole area surrounding the roundabout changed as a result of this traffic alteration, transforming it forever. It was around this time that I unknowingly realized for the first time how the changes of the region created changes in the people that lived there. Unfortunately, I have no memory (or, at least, a vague one) of what that little intersection looked like; perhaps it is the difficulty that I have in attempting to remember that place before these changes that compels me to work on the places around the mouth of the River Cassarate – because visual memory is part of our cultural patrimony and of our identity.
Support the publication of the book
This crowdfunding campaign is to support the costs of realization of the photographic book Foce. Many people work in a photo book, there is who is responsible for digitizing images, graphics designers, translators of the texts, the person who calibrates the colors for printing, the authors of the texts, who corrects the texts. All these people work together to make the best of the book, and they do great!
