THE LAST SUMMER 2011-2016

This project is about a house in the Northern Italian countryside that my mother inherited by my grandparents, which is also the place where I used to spend summer during my childhood.
In 2011 I was there again, looking for something to read, when, by chance, I found out a book with an inscription for me written by my grandmother in 1990:
"…may this memory be always with you".
I used some titles of the summary of that gift to create the chapters of my photographic research about that place, which is a perfect metaphor, to me, of what is gone.

I. SOUVENIRS D'ENFANCE (2016):
Old pictures of my grandmother and her sister's childhood and youth that I found there and that I revisited in a magical perspective.

II. TRAVAIL SPIRITUEL (2011-2016):
A journey between the past and the present, revising old pictures and confusing them with new ones, blending memories and expectation. It's especially focused on my mother.
I had that idea it in 2011, when my parents wanted to sell the house - they later changed their minds- and I wanted to say goodbye to that place with a photographic project.

3. LA GUERRE (Diambra Mariani and Francesco Mion - 2016):
When my parents decided not to sell the house, me and my partner, who's the co-author of that chapter, decided to go to live there at least one month a year to bring it back to life. It's a sort of 'war' against decadence, but it's like a 'sanctum', a private place protected by modernity.

Digital photography is a sort of photography that utilizations advanced innovation to make pictures of articles and subjects. This is taken by an uncommon kind of camera called a computerized camera. Essentially these sorts of cameras don’t utilize film like what you are utilized to, however rather store all pictures taken onto a memory card which can be altered and transferred truly effectively <a href="http://www.essaystar.co.uk/">Essay Help | Essay Star</a>. Actually the primary preferred standpoint of digital photography is that you can catch the same number of photographs as you craving and erase undesirable ones later without bargaining the memory card! I certainly prescribe you attempt this field of photography as it has many advantages.
