I have contributed in “A/RRIVEDERCI ROMA,” an independent project conceived by Vashti Ali, Maria Elena Ciullo, Marta Federici, and Maria Giovanna Virga on the occasion of the XVI Art Quadrennial, Rome.
With a farewell which also suggests see you again (“arrivederci” means both “goodbye” and “we’ll see each other again” in Italian), A/R refers to a process of transformation that is realised through a reversal movement. Is it possible to shed preconceived ideas and disrupt an image of Rome which is seemingly immutable and embedded in the collective consciousness? Is it possible to portray Rome again, in a different way?
For this project, I chose Piazza di Spagna and Trinità de Monti. You can read my story here.
