Starting from 2015 to 2018 I’ve been working on a project called Fata Morgana, a complex mirage that distorts objects and then fades very quickly. This phenomenon is visible from my region in the southern part of Italy, Salento and it represents for me a powerful metaphor of our contemporary geopolitical situation. 

Everybody speaks about my land because of the tourism nowadays: I’ve tried to make this periphery of Europe the core for new storytelling, to unveil issue as migration, lack of integration, exploitation of the seasonal workers. 

Despite being less dramatic from an aesthetic standpoint, these visions are not less meaningful.
