These shots, taken in 2004 for the project entitled “Raise your eyes and look”, mark the beginning of my deep love of Forcella and Naples.

They were exhibited at Napoli 2005, together with Elisabetta Valentini’s photographs of the Sanità district, displayed on large billboards in the neighbourhoods themselves, in the Sala Leopardi of Palazzo Reale, and at La Feltrinelli in Piazza dei Martiri.
