“I wish the world was even is a travel diary. Matteo Di Giovanni travels north by car, cutting Europe vertically, through the winter. (…)
To look at the world through the eyes of Matteo means, in the first place, to be always immersed in the landscape, and to see it flowing along the sides of the road.
We are then driven outside to face the journey. We learn to take a certain distance from what appears in front of us. Neither too far nor too close. A sort of safety distance that takes in a rather large picture while, at the same time, revealing an irresistible curiosity to look better and get closer. Barriers and obstacles inevitably turn up.
They are met and overcome.”
Giulia Zorzi
