Recently and for a few years, I moved back to Italy - the country were I was born - setting up my base in Torino.
One of my favorite memories of Turin is Luci d’Artista. The city, mainly during the winter nights, becomes an open air art gallery (with light games played between pillars and friezes, on the facades of the city's ancient churches and bridges). The twinkling "Luci d'Artista" features works from prominent Italian and International contemporary artists.

In this photograph: a double exposure play. Reflected on the wet pavement of Piazza della Repubblica - in Turin's Porta Palazzo - are the colorful lights of a permanent Public Art installation, by Michelangelo Pistoletto, called: “Amare le Differenze” / “Love differences”.

My home was just a couple of blocks away from the market and I could see this rainbow of colors almost every night. After some basic research, I learned that the artist’s basic concept for this project was that of bringing love wherever there is tension due to diversity.

The words 'Love Difference' are repeated in 39 different languages to reflect the variety of social components present in the city. The area of Porta Palazzo is the part of Turn with the highest concentration of diverse ethnic, religious and cultural groups.

My title: "Graffiami di colore Vorrei Sanguinare Luce" translates to "Scratch me with Color I wish I could bleed light".
