Alfredo Romio - Balconies of Italy (COVID SERIES)
Balconi d'Italia, 2020
cm 105 x 70 cm
Image made to preserve the totally new situation of physical living and socializing that could take place exclusively through the balconies of one's home, just after PHASE 1 of Lockdown. Six different scenes for each balcony of the apartment building: a woman playing sports, the man shouting "we're going to make it," two influencers toasting at a distance with the downstairs couple, one of whom plays a musical instrument, a pair of parents arguing furiously in front of their children and, finally, an elderly lady, alone and disabled, with too many chess pieces of trash to throw away. On the lower floors, death has already paid a visit.
