Three Geosophical Fragments:
Landscape Through The Tears of Our Lady, The Po Valley
The Hermit, Trieste
North Emisfero, The Possessed of Verzegnis Ruskin Gallery
BORDER IS NOT A LINE BUT A DEPTH
I was born in Legnago, a small town in northern Italy. I attended Palaeontology at the University of Trieste and Photography at the EcoleSuperieure d’Art in Mulhouse, in North-Eastern France. I currently live and work in Trieste. I would not call myself an artist or a photographer, but rather an “explorer of the world”.
For a few years, I’ve been devoting myself, with an undefined degree of awareness, to what I call Experimental Geosophy.
Experimental Geosophy is a sort of dowsing applied to the tale of a place, in which the main instrument is the human being and their aptitude for subtle perception. If I had to define it in a few steps, I would say that it means:
- Revealing the deep nature of places
- Conceiving a representation system determined by the place itself. A sort of symbolic paradigm for a specific place
- Being aware that each sign is an imprecise translation of something inexpressible
- Conceiving poetry not as literature but as the practice of weaving unexpected relationships between people, things, and events.
- Imagining poetry as the only form capable of capturing the complexity of reality
- Imagining poetry as an instrument of investigation same as a microscope or the metre
