The last Summer/ II. Travail Spirituel
This project is about a house in the countryside that my parents inherited by my grandparents.
It's the place where I used to spend the summer during my childhood.
After many years I found out a book with a dedication for me written by my grandmother:
"…may this memory be always with you".
I used some titles of the summary to create my own chapters.
I. SOUVENIRS D'ENFANCE (2016):
Old pictures of my grandmother and her sister's childhood and youth that I found and that I revisited.
II. TRAVAIL SPIRITUEL (2011-2016):
A journey between the past and the present, revising old pictures and confusing them with new ones, blending memories and expectation.
In 2011 my parents wanted to sell the house - they later changed their minds- and I wanted to say goodbye to that place.
3. LA GUERRE (Diambra Mariani and Francesco Mion - 2016):
When my parents decided not to sell the house, me and my partner decided to go to live there at least one month a year to bring it back to life.
