Lucanian Suggestions

Like a fairy tale told next to a brazier, stories of ghosts, dreams and desires of a distant generation come to life.

"Lucanian Suggestions" is a long journey towards the innermost area of Basilicata, one of the loneliest and quietest regions in Italy. This journey seeks to tell the hidden world, the most intimate of this land, through an intimate and personal visual narrative.

Like a fairy tale told next to a brazier, stories of ghosts, dreams and desires of a distant generation come to life, where the magical object is a fundamental element of these tales.

The project tends to imitate the time of the place where the rhythm is marked by events of metamorphosis, death and resurrection. A time that devours and is reborn like the one described by the author Giambattista Basile, who, through research into centuries-old popular tales, managed to find that union between the opposites of life: the ordinary and the extraordinary, the grotesque and the harmony. 

The aim of the project is to stop these events, making them reappear through images as an eternal dream.
