During my journey in this industrial wonderland, I discovered an endless richness in which dedication, accuracy, aesthetics, poetry, technology, passion, beauty, elegance and vision blend harmoniously together.

Observing the workers through the lens, I noticed that even the smallest part of an industrial product has its own story, which is the result of a long journey through dedicated and focused craftsmanship.

Reportage: Lower 9th Ward - 5 Years after Katrina
Lower Ninth Ward is a neighbourhood of the city of New Orleans. The term "Lower" refers to its location farther towards the mouth of the Mississippi River. The neighbourhood was devastated in 2005 by the flooding caused by the breach of the Industrial Canal during the Hurricane Katrina. Almost every house in the Lower 9th Ward has been flooded to the roof and severely damaged. Many people died, many others left and never came back.
Five years later it's still possible to see the deep scars left by Katrina in some areas of this neighbourhood. However, several reconstruction programs are in progress bringing back the life to the 9th Ward and many families are coming back to their new houses. Among these reconstruction programs (as for example, the Holy Cross Project) the actor Brad Pitt established in 2007 the “Make It Right Foundation” to build 150 green, affordable, high-quality design homes in the neighbourhood.
Reportage: Idroscalo di Ostia
Idroscalo di Ostia was originally an airfield built in 1928 on a dredged up part of the south bank of the river Tiber.
After World War II the airfield fell into disuse.
In 1950, a fishing pier was built. Vacation houses soon followed, many of which became permanent residences for Romans and foreigners looking for relief from the high prices of the city.
Today, around five hundred families, three generations, live in Idroscalo di Ostia, on the river Tiber.
Idroscalo di Ostia is also known since it was the site that the murder of Italian Cineast, poet and writer Pier Paolo Pasolini took place in November 1975.
In 1994 the site became a protected habitat and in 2010 the police began evicting people and demolishing their summer cottages.
Today the residents are still protesting against the eviction in order to remain in the place where they have built their lives for six decades.
