"La Guerra attraverso la Luce" (in English: "The War through the Light") is a long term project born from an idea of my dear friend and photographer Alessio Polloni.
His grandfather was a resistance soldier during the Second World War and Alessio felt that he was deeply missing the incredible and terrifying tales that his grandfather was used to tell him when he was young.
Tales of courage, humanity and hope, that we felt the need to document, remember and present to people that so often forget all the atrocities we have gone through those dark years.
We decided to use the tool that would give us the most freedom to express: the camera. War happened a long time ago, but it is our current duty to not encourage evil habits that could let it happen again in the near future.
Here you can watch the full presentation (in Italian) and the list of all our protagonists.
