The web "carusu" (carusu means "guy" in sicialian language).
I never stick around quite long enough,
have been in Palermo, Turin, London, and now in Alba (North of Italy)!

In every work I make, my main goal is to tell the best story through images,
the one that involves and persists over time.




discover their identities

Eyes, people, stories. Eight #HiddenSuperHeroes that hold the strength of hundreds of other homeless. A life that in some cases they have chosen, in many others not. This is precisely the desire to reveal their identity: let's pay attention, let's talk to them, let's listen to them. They might remember a good reason to fight back, and we might remember it too.

The choice fell on the Marvel superhero masks, whose stories have many points in common with the homeless. Rag masks: bright colors held in a few centimeters of fabric.


To all the homeless that we met, to the Government of Turin, to its "Boa notturna" service, to the “Costruire Bellezza” team, to the Cooperativa Valdocco, to the Turin committee of the Italian Red Cross, and to the young girls and boys of Casa Oz for the production of the superheroes' masks, core of an idea that has become reality.
