TRI-NA-KRIA, represents the symbol of Sicily. It’s a personal ongoing project since 1986, along research on the different aspects of my country. The island on this side of the light-house, the continent on the other side. This is a selection of photos from different years. They evoke an atmosphere that you can feel when you cross the Sicilian hinterland. They present a slight contrast with the present time. In a very theatrical manner, the photography describe the characters, gestures and faces of Sicilian people.You can sense it in the pictures of the daily routine, like the ‘passegio’ (the walk), as well as in the scenes of highly significant events, the religious rituals, in which everybody wants to participate. “The movement of the sea water washed part of the coast away. It formed a bridge, shaken by volcanos and turned upside down by the waves. This is how Sicily became an island” (‘Travel to Sicily’ by F.Munter)
