This project offers a nuanced look into Rome’s peripheries, exploring their connection with the bustling center of the city and shedding light on their gritty realities. The work delves into the contradictions and complexities that exist on the outskirts of Rome, where historical and monumental landmarks give way to terraced housing, high-rises, and identical apartment blocks, often surrounded by desolate parking lots and shopping malls. However, these areas are not defined solely by their physical characteristics; they are also home to a diverse array of individuals who defy simplistic descriptions. One recurring theme is the perception of the city center as remote and unapproachable from these peripheral areas. Commissioned by the Commission Roma per la Fotografia and exhibited at the Mattatoio museum in Rome, this project offers a thought-provoking exploration of Rome’s edges.
