This work is a sort of enquiry into two worlds that travel on parallel planes but with, at times, some tragic overlaps.
On the one hand there is the social and human degradation which is not necessarily related to poverty but often concentrated in a bourgeois environment where economic possibilities should in theory produce a parallel development on a human and cultural level, and where, on the contrary, the dominant values of society seem to propel humanity into a world of solitude and madness. A world where ambitions, and selfish desire seem to have become the only values of the entire western world.
On the unobtainable horizon: four stereotype television images.
On the other hand, there are images that describe life in the periphery of the city, in this case Rome. Of individuals who often carry within themselves an element of drama, made up of stories, of un-recountable adventures, authentic heroic dramas that one will never encounter in history books. Of the daily struggle for survival in a world that often rejects them.
A life spent in hovels such as those of the Rom comunity of Casilino, 900 of which have been standing for the past 40 years, or the village of Ponte Mammolo which houses ethnic communities and their reassuring traditions, their only baggage from their faraway worlds. Or the Termini station last refuge for those who are completely lost, in the fumes of alcohol, for those who have tried and tried again to live but in the end have given up. But the road is also that of those who have completely and consciously wanted to distance themselves from this world, choosing absolute poverty, because after all Jesus himself was a vagabond.
