SERVABO (inspired by Luigi Pintor)

Cagliari is a harbor in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. Some people leave and some people come. I participate in this flux constantly. But when I come back I always have a strange sensation combining nostalgic and melancholic emotions with a new visual curiosity. I’m feeling home but something always changes, Cagliari and me are not the same. Then through the photos I try to reestablish a relationship that mixes memories with the present.
These images have the task to reorganize my fantasy, because there is something related to reality.
