...depicting the fallen angel, entangled in a web, his body twisted, writhing in agony, suspended and unable to move. One has to look closer to observe that the web is made of telegraph wires, the posts from which they are secured, looming like crosses before Lucifer himself....
Non ti Scordar di Me, starring Federico, is a project
forged in Manfredonia, Apulia.
The trilogy is intended as an Odyssey that the Ego begins to define the Self, performing an
intimate, cyclical and spiritual ritual, exploring the themes of self-growth and youth.
This story is orchestrated as a path we make to unveil our Person, between borders and new
discoveries, family memories and desires, symbols and archetypes, challenging the limits of
the inexorable change.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
― Lord Byron

“That's Venus, September thought. She was the goddess of love. It's nice that love comes on first thing in the evening, and goes out last in the morning. Love keeps the light on all night.”

“I have such a fear of finding another like myself, and such a desire to find one! I am so utterly lonely, but I also have such a fear that my isolation be broken through, and I no longer be the head and ruler of my universe.”
― Anaïs Nin, House of Incest
...Slavic culture is an immense and sometimes contradictory world of folklore, with a large number of linear and horizontal plots, characters, who are strange and paradoxical in their actions, with dual morality, which can be totally lost at some point.
Photographer and artist Uldus Bakhtiozina treat us with her unique vision of Russian fairy tales.
With a big love for the bold and unexpected, Simon’s style often depicts mundane everyday life draped in the surreal. He’s not afraid to flirt with the nostalgic, giving a glimpse of a forgotten era from the past, and often there’s also more than first meets the eye.
“We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won’t do harm - yes, choose a place where you won’t do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”

“For a moment, she thought she was crying too. But then she realised she was just humming.
Finally, she could hear the farm.
A snippet of a song played in her head. One of the songs she always heard blasting over the farm’s loudspeakers. A song about summer days under the sun. She could really hear it. She could feel the warm, sultry air on her skin, and she wasn’t cold anymore.
The air was always yellow at the farm.
― Anni Taylor, Poison Orchids

The heart of the planet is made of fire, of ardent sun.

“A dessert to a deserter in the desert burst, "You trust your thirst. And you are too hot! You scream for ice cream. And believe it or not, I may not be your first. But I might be your lust! Give it a shot...”

“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.”
― Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

The outfits were always altered to be a little more “Fran”: a little shorter, a little more fitted, a little more flair...
