The failed embrace - ongoing project.
This project is dedicated to my grandfather.
He came from Greece to Italy at the age of 17. He began a military career, then got married and had two children. He never returned to Greece and we never talked about his origins, as we were very different... impossibly different.
I came to Greece for the first time in Autumn 2011, to look for my grandfather's house. I never found it. I found the country destroyed by the crisis, and the sentiment that reflected my search for the past, in the present. I returned several times.
