The project stems from the desire of photographing archives and collections, an often-unknown heritage, full of beauty and history, building a narrative space within which, in addition to the works and documents, it is possible to describe the places and, through them, Italy.

The selected archives are both from museum and private collections; among the Institutions: La Biennale di Venezia, Pompeii Archives, Naples State Archives, MAXXI Archives. The private collections belong to personalities from the world of art, architecture and design the likes of Carol Rama, Achille Castiglioni, Enzo Mari, Renzo Piano.
