My project is aimed to explore the places that shifted radically during the boom, representing the “new landscape” that Maria Antonella Pelizzari described as “apparently removed and forgotten” (Pelizzari, 2013: 11).
As Arturo Carlo Quintavalle suggested in the preface wrote for Viaggio in Italia (1984), a number of authors and analyst as well as photographers and writers began to question if the countryside still exist but also how ambiguous its representation has become (Quintavalle, 1983: 14). It’s a matter of brining the everyday and banal to our attention, of refocusing our gaze on the non-places that we overlook. These liminal places have been gradually excluded and ignored from our daily life and disassociated from our existence in highly urbanized cities. francescotaurisano.com
