April 8, 1978-2018, forty years of my parents' marriage. July 7, 2019, a year without her Christmas 2020, I can feel it for a short moment, too short. A/Essenza Di Lei [Absence / Essence of her – Since 2018] A/Essenza di lei is a visual diary started in 2018, thanks to which I can bear that deep void that was created after my mother’s death. Her Absence is something I face every day, sometimes I manage to accept it because my eyes are filled with memories, photos, objects that belonged to her, her essence is with me, I am part of her essence. But there are days when I feel her absence so heavily that I create images of thought to still have her near, with the illusion that she can hear me.
