As an architect and photographer Alessia observes and documents places on the periphery of metropolitan cities often neglected. She uses her photography to advocate for change.
In her words:
The photography is for me the Interpretation through the documentation, I express myself and my way of observing the world with the images.
Currently in the metropolitan cities the attention is set toward its cultural and economic attractors, often It goes to the detriment of “collective” places (in particular in peripheral urban areas).
These spaces are characterized by strong resiliency, by cultural-social factors and they are influenced by the general environmental context of degrade and abandonment.
“Places” and “not places” in order to increase their inner potentialities, few interventions can bring to the normalcy uncomfortable areas.
My personal contribution, as an architect and a careful observer of the space around me, by using the Photographs is to document the state of them and in the meantime to induce new visions about them.
