Diary Excerpts


...The chance to have the time and the right equipment available will lead us to develop new projects, complete old ones, meet new people...


Roberta leaves for Civitella and Gi (Luigina) follows her to help (as representative of Gruppo Mille), ...here they are with their gear: cameras, pieces of wood, glue guns, and with an intense desire to develop and print photos of old and new projects in the darkroom, a desire to get to meet new people and maybe collaborate on new projects...


walls of our studio change often, they get filled up,then nothing else fits in and there are too many sheets of paper hanging from them, so we take everything off to make room for news things, photos of objects found in the street that look as if they belong to a giant who lives on this land, a wooden sword hanging up close to a white flag...
These have been 5 very productive weeks, and with some sadness we leave the Castle...
