Radici is a physical memory, the mark of time.
Radici is the constant urge to survive, to expand, to leave a trace, it is the legacy of our past and the elaboration of our present.
Radici is something that grows underground, something that belongs to nature, and to nature it will return.
Radici is a journey that explores an ancestral relation with nature, the surrounding environment, shapes and memories.
One of the main matrices is located in Cannobina Valley, where my grandparents lived, where my mother grew, where I’ve spent my summers.
Today the Valley is for most an abandoned territory. Radici takes shape from there, from those misty memories and unconscious themes, as an elaboration of buried traces and conflicts where succeeding, in terms of life, depends from the act of maintaining a form or be deformed.
