I have always been struck by a peculiarity of sculpture: realism and life that light creates on these three-dimensional figures, emphasizing their deep and human side.
This project started as a game. During one of the “Dairy Photography” events (a club born in Mantua using photography as a socialization method) I quickly tried to associate a statue with every person who came to the studio to be photographed. The result was surprising, and I realized that each of us inevitably belongs to a mythological or historical ancestor.
I pulled out the human side I always saw in these works of art, through the light and the identification of the people who played with me to be a god or emperor from far away. Statues, more than paintings, just because of their three-dimensionality and the light falling on them, are the art form that most resembles and represents us.
