“The Beautiful Country” is a photographic project with a double soul.

On one side, it’s a tribute to abstract painting. I like this movement because it’s able to express feelings without using images belonging to the reality. I tried to recreate this process using colors and shapes of earth surface.

On the other hand, it’s a study on the Italian landscape; thanks to satellite imagery, took from a distance of 15 km, if you watch carefully the images, it’s possible to see, from an unusual point of view, how man has modified the landscape during the century.
