My photographic project ORO BIANCO—White Gold—
is dedicated to the heart of Volterra: the artisan craftwork of the alabastrai.
Between February and May 2017 I went to see the alabastrai in their workshops
and photographed them. In a more and more intense way, I discovered their spaces
and their working process, the relationship between man and material, between
artisan and alabaster. Observing and photographing I understood which science
there is, which tradition, which virtuosity, which skill.
The knowledge of the alabaster and the art of its workmanship, I realized, is a treasure.
Delight of making, passion and love are contained in it.
