The Series is my free interpretation of the bombing of Rome in the Second World War. On July 19, 1943, the entire working-class district of San Lorenzo was destroyed. I propose a journey through time: from the future to the past. I just wanted to identify with feelings and the atmosphere that those places profuse. I tell a story about a young girl who died during this bombing. I just allow her energy to live again in her district. I travel through again the places that concerned this tragic event and I try to evocate feelings of that collective tragedy with my imaginative storytelling.
