2020 / 2021
A series of images shooted during the Covid-19 lockdown in silent and deserted cities in Italy, bordering the surreal. The night vision of the empty city is mixed with bright cloudy skies, shooted from my house during the daytime. The luminosity of the sky becomes unsettling, making the empty darkness below even more impenetrable than it would seem in a normal context.
My photography captures the haunting beauty of deserted cities during Covid-19 lockdown, juxtaposed against a bright, cloud-filled sky. Through my lens, I aim to convey a sense of isolation and abandonment in these urban dark landscapes, while also highlighting the enduring strength and resilience of human-built structures. The vivid colors of the sky serve as a symbol of hope and optimism, providing a striking contrast to the desolate emptiness of the most iconics places in Italian main cities. My images invite viewers to contemplate the impact of human activity on the environment, and ultimately, I hope to inspire a greater appreciation for the beauty and fragility of our world and the importance of preserving our shared spaces for future generations
