Solo Exhibition "Pisa dai mille volti" - "Dalle Apuane al mare" - Pisa
From 3 to 30 September 2019 I will held a solo exhibition at 'Angolo di Borgo' - Foto Ottica Allegrini, in Borgo Stretto 49, Pisa.
The first series is 'Pisa dai mille volti/The thousand faces of Pisa' (3-15 September 2019).
"You always think to know it, but a moment later it shows you a new face. Pisa is like this: among squares full of history, narrow alleys and elegant Lungarni, the city is able to surprise you, with its lights and shadows, every day once again. The photographic journey makes a stop in the famous and miraculous square, passing through more or less known spots of the city center: from Piazza dei Cavalieri to Logge di Banchi, from Piazza dell'Arcivescovado to Ponte Solferino... with a special consideration for games of light/shadow and "adverse" weather conditions."
The second series is 'Dalle Apuane al mare/From Apuan Alps to the sea" (16-30 September).
"The magnetic charm of the stormy sea, driven by the winds of Libeccio and Ponente, the magic of wildlife at dawn inside the San Rossore natural Park, the colors' explosion of the rapeseed, poppies and sunflowers fields in Spring and Summer, the miracle of the Moon which is renewed day after day, the imposing setting of the Pisan Mountains and the Apuan Alps that watch over the Pisan plain. The city of Pisa enjoys an enviable position, a step away from a priceless naturalistic and landscape heritage."

But even if manifest, the human presence finishes to merge with the architecture and blend with it, in a last attempt of the latter to rebel against its creator.
