Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis
[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

There is a time of year, in Italy, where we are all equal, in which all the differences vanish and the social classes, if they still exist, flatten out, this time is the summer.

“Italian Summer” is a journey in constant evolution, a journey that wants to tell the Italian spirit on vacation in a transversal way, investigating the different approaches and the different social groups that have formed in recent years.


Italian Summer

The social classes, as we have always known them, have disappeared: despite the fact that in 2017 Istat identified as many as nine classes divided by income and type of activity, today they are no longer as visible as they used to be. These groups are in fact subject to a strong and incessant loss of identity linked to the precarization and fragmentation of work paths, but also to the change of attributions and meanings of the different professional roles.

The “Italian Summer” project shows a current cross-section of the Italian welfare state at this precise historical moment, at a time when classes lose their boundaries while maintaining certain features that emerge strongly, and sometimes cancel each other out.

Summer becomes the territory of belonging of all, of every worker, of young and old, Italians and foreigners, it is a shared moment, where, before the sun and the tan every difference melts and is lost, and everything is leveled .

“Italian Summer” is a path in constant motion linked to territoriality, to the different Italian regions, to their peculiarities, sometimes simply painted in their natural characteristics sometimes characterized by their paradoxes.

The point of view from above, puts the photographer above everything, as if he did not enter into the merits of any social or economic classification.
