Photographer's Note

Everyday tons of messages of any kind pester us....messages of any kind: advertisings, road signs, screaming people, football players, tv stars, politicians, everyone seems to have this wish: to tell us something. It's the cacophonous city, where any corner is filled with some kind of words, some kind of messages. Here we are in Rome and these are bus stops with some political advertisings. Next month there will be some important elections in Italy (regional ones) and everybody is trying to tell us something. In this case we have some politicians (no matter is they belong to one party or to another one, I don't care) and in the background even a beer manufacturer wants to tell us something...in the very background we can see the church of S. Andrea della Valle: what you see is a fake facade, since the church is actually under restoring works, wrapped by those big sheets with ... advertisings...everyone is trying to tell us something in the cacophonous city.

=====================================================

La citt cacofonica. Roma come tante altre, dove ognuno cerca di far passare un messaggio...e meno male che sulle paline di questa fermata d'autobus c' scritto "Rinascimento"....ma per chi sar questo rinascimento con la r minuscola? Forse soltanto per chi ci lancia questi messaggi, destra o sinistra o centro non importa, tutti ci provano e noi siamo assediati dai messaggi. Ovunque, dai cartelloni per strada alle fermate d'autobus, messaggi gridati da chiunque, star della tv, calciatori, fruttivedoli, giungono e si posano ovunque. La chiesa di S. Andrea della Valle assiste silenziosa e finta sullo sfondo. Gi, finta come questa finta facciata, teli usati per coprire i lavori di restauro...ovviamente con pubblicit annessa...benvenuti nella Citt Cacofonica!
