My work with Meloni Meloni began in 2014. As usual it was a happy circumstance that got me started. I was in Ravenna on a commission for Osservatorio Fotografico. One day I drove the little road between Classe and Lido Dante, just outside Ravenna. 

In the corner of my eye I saw a sign with the text Meloni Meloni. What a wonderful sign! My thoughts went to words like melody and melancholy. I immediately got in a very good mood, parked my car and started walking along the road Via Bosca.

A short little road, maybe 4-5 kilometers long. A fairly typical Italian road on the border between the suburb and the countryside. But of course very interesting when you're in a happy mood. Over the years I have returned several times. 

The book has four chapters, one for each year I photographed and in each year the walks begins at the sign.
