The series “Paggaio” is the embarking on a peripatetic experience of the landscape of Mount Paggaio and incorporates research, recording and personal narration. Following an intuitive path, the landscape at first seems chaotic, inconceivable, alienated. The exploration reveals traces of history that have been accumulated on this place, stone carvings, empty mining galleries or modern excavations that testify to gold digging. Subsequently, stories and fragments are collected, trying to connect memory and imagination, the past and the present, but mainly to describe a sense of place. Through photography, the landscape seems more accessible, understandable, a place with distinct boundaries.
