Series is my free interpretation of bombing of Rome in Second World War. On July 19 ,1943, the entire working class district of San Lorenzo was destroyed,3000 Italian civilians were killed in the raids over five residential/railway districts. In those pictures I propose a journey from the future in this past,I just wanted identifying with feelings and the atmosphere that those places profuse.
Photos are taken in Rome, with Ilford 400 ISO and Nikon FM 35mm.
