Before the winter,

Before the dawn,

Before the shadow,

Before the jump,

Before the echo,

Before the silence,

Before the crash,

Before a goodbye,

Before you and me.



In just a few moments, the Vajont tragedy swept away thousands of years of history, in the landscape and its shape, not to mention the economies and social structures that defined a small mountain community like Erto e Casso.


I believe that photography, in the fragmented nature of its storytelling, can be an exceptional narrative tool for reflecting on the identity of a place, due to its capacity to travel through space and time and to stop still realities otherwise in continual evolution. I have been influenced by the stories I have heard about the moments before the tragedy, before everything changed forever. I chose the word "submerged", and through it, I started to envision my story of Vajont.
