The Visible City / La Città Visibile

The visible City The title of the portfolio has been inspired to Italo Calvinos book, Invisible Cities, described by Marco Polo to Kublai Kan: an atlas of fantasy cities with womens names. It has also to do with the predominant visual aspect of contemporary cities. I began this work some years ago with the idea to record some transformations of the landscape of Rome due to the extensive use of big posters or billboards on building or means of transportation which began to invade the city. The economic globalization has given birth to a visual globalization, so that in these images it is difficult to say if we are in New York, London or Rome. We are all living in what Cohen-Sat defines an iconosphere, a universe of artificial images, produced on an industrial scale created for a growing population which needs an everyday consumption of images. Moreover I have tried to emphasize the unusual relationship between the real city and the one create by publicity through an ironic and surreal vision: a woman who seems to drink at a fountain, a Concorde which flies in a paper sky, some mysterious running figuresa gigantic paper world which breaks into our real world. So in a way my work has not only a adocumentary aim, but has to do with the theme of illusion and reality where the city becomes a metaphor of our lives. The photos have been taken with analogic cameras and have not been digitally modified. Even if some of them seem to be collages, they represent exactly what my eye and the camera have seen.
