CONCRETE & SOUL – A VISION OF S. AMBROGIO TWIN NEIGHBORHOODS

 

CONCRETE & SOUL

I set out to dedicate a series of shots to the two neighborhoods designed by Milanese architect Arrigo Arrighetti (1922-1989) and built between 1962 and the early seventies, in the south-west of Milan.

Three reasons have guided me in this choice. First: my parents live in the area. Second: I had in mind an early Seventies shot by Uliano Lucas – a flock of sheep in front of one of the two housing projects. Third: I have always been fascinated by the unusual urban coexistence of vegetation and concrete – both neighborhoods contain, in fact, common green areas and are still partially surrounded by undeveloped areas.

With these guidelines in mind I started shooting in November 2011 and, just recently, I completed the project (though I might continue shooting in the area). These shots, taken with different digital cameras, by day and at night, aim at seizing on the one hand the simplicity of Arrighetti’s “neo-pagan” architectural lines – the only human presence in my reportage – and on the other to relate them to the anarchist soul of an unexpected wilderness.
