N is a work that illustrates the conflicted nature of an Italian province and the relationship between it and a section of its inhabitants, in particular the generation in their 30s. Young people with solid backgrounds, who have to confront the contemporary provincial dynamics in which they are trapped, hanging in the balance of leaving or staying, of the desire for a different future and, at the same time, a desire not to give up on their country. Places in which one must live according to preestablished logic, dictated by a kind of rule from above which prescribes a “normal” existence and “standard” behaviour, a certain type of mentality. There is often a fine thread, at times imperceptible, between a place of belonging and its inhabitants. The videos show the surface of apparent beauty as the dilated time of these places. The photographs instead, like x-ray images, are a way to go inside them and see what happens to the protagonists who live on the limits of a European periphery.
