The project is focused on the province of Italy as a category of feeling.
In fact there is no interest in creating a physical amenability to a specific land; what I want is to convey the feeling of the province and that of living in the province.
As I was shooting the project, I understood that the sensation was the same in Marsala as it was in Ivrea or in Barletta or in Udine. That feeling brings to a kind of collapse of the 110 Italian provinces, into the biggest and unique province: Italy itself.
This work was done with slide films to resemble the color tones of films commonly used by Italian families in the 70s-80s, because sometimes in the province it is like if the time has been stopped at that time.
During my travel throughout the peninsula, I moved focused on the everyday lives of people. I went to common situations: friends chatting on a lawn, sunbathers at the beach, Saturday night in the disco. As if the pictures I took were my personal notes about the maxi country, my tale about todays Italy.
