Roma: Street Photography in the Eternal City

For Street Photography, Roma is one of the most interesting cities in the world. A place full of contradictions, where the sacred and the profane, Romans and foreigners, the bourgeois soul and the popular one coexist. A colorful mixture of students, workers, politicians, priests, tourists and artists. All of them in constant balance between religious faith, football faith, political faith or simply between the various nuances of daily life. My ambition, as a photographer born and raised in Rome, is to catch these contradictions, collecting random moments from the life of my city. Moments that can reflect its moods, its colors, its feelings. But above all, through Street Photography, moments that can tell its life.

Per la Street Photography, Roma è una delle città più interessanti al mondo. Una città piena di contraddizioni, dove convivono il sacro e il profano, romani e stranieri, l’anima borghese e quella popolare. Un miscuglio colorato di studenti, lavoratori, politici, preti, turisti e artisti. Tutti in costante equilibrio tra la fede religiosa, la fede calcistica, la fede politica o semplicemente tra le varie sfumature della vita quotidiana. La mia ambizione, da fotografo nato e cresciuto a Roma, è di catturare queste contraddizioni, di raccogliere momenti casuali della vita della mia città. Momenti che possano rispecchiarne gli umori, i colori, i sentimenti. Ma soprattutto, attraverso la Street Photography, che possano raccontarne la vita.
