The book is a mental and emotional map of a few square meters of Albergheria district in Palermo (Sicily, Italy). Here, we witness people passing by as actors in a private, daily theater where nothing, yet everything happens.
People who are absorbed in their everyday lives, that may seem meaningless.
It’s the mere existence, far from folkloric and guidebooks representations — the invisibility of routines.
People who are imagined – and held together – as dots on a map representing a spatial and life experience. Emptied of almost all of its usual meanings, the urban landscape may sometimes reveal abstract shapes – a sort of “cartography of asphalt”.
It’s a loop-book that invite you to enter and feel.
