Italian summer is the season when Italians can express their lightness of being and their love for life.
I took these pictures in different places around Italy—like the island of Salina in Sicily, Salento in Puglia, and Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany. I looked at people of all ages and social stations hoping to find that one common thread of surreal irony.
I think I did. As an Italian expat who has lived in London for ten years, I can finally see my cultural traits spread on the beaches of Italy and that evokes strong childhood memories of the long happy summers I spent there.
Bio I’m an architect founder of a successful architectural company. Architecture and photography, they are somehow interlinked, they both are related to the idea of space, tri dimensionality and people interacting with the environment. For me, learning photography was a natural and organic process. Compared to architecture in where the whole project’s genesis for conception to completion can take years, photography allowed me to vent my creativity in a shorter amount of time.
