NIENTE PAURA

My project NIENTE PAURA is now online. It is a personal research about the story of my family.
The words  "niente paura"  mean  "no fear"  and they come from a postcard my grandfather sent to my dad during 1957. At the time my dad was 6 years old and the writing says:
Baci da tuo papà e... niente paura
Kisses from you dad and... no fear!

SAN BERILLO on VICE MAGAZINE


San Berillo is one of the historical districts of my hometown (Catania, Sicily). In the late fifties the area was part of a redevelopment plan, unfortunately never completed. After the intervention the area known as San Berillo was drastically reduced and today is mainly know as home of prostitution and two major African communities, the Senegalese and Nigerians.

ZIRA IN TIPI BOOKSHOP BOX

When you get a book at Tipi Bookshop it comes in a decorated box made by Andrea Copetti. After I received Afterword by Fukase (wonderful book about his cat) I left the box behind a tent. A few weeks later Zira started collecting her toys inside it and using it to sleep. Read the new interview about Tipi Bookshop HERE !
