A link between the city and the countryside, a home and a meeting place, and all packed into about one kilometre. Built in the seventies in the south-west of Rome, many people believed in the Corviale’s innovative living concept. Reality, however, looks somewhat different. This is a story of an unfulfilled promise, manifested in stone.
Born in Umbria, Andrea Boccalini has made Rome his home. He began his photographic career at age 30, with a social reportage on Guatemala. Nowadays, in addition to reportage, he specializes in music photography. The pictures of the Corviale were produced in collaboration with Leica Camera Italia. Boccalini also runs photography workshops for Leica and acts as an ambassador for the brand.
