The project, born from the desire to explore the relationship between images and memory and the transitory nature of human existence, is a photographic census of the inhabitants who “resist” in the emptying small villages of my mountains and, at the same time, a personal and silent crossing of the landscape, an homage to mountains, a meditation on the slow social and cultural mutation of the territory.
Faces disappear, images get blurred, stories handed down by word of mouth often to become legends. My tribute to the mountain is a tribute to (its) silence.
The absence of words, this is the nature of the relationship I have with the mountains.
