The year 2015 was the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The photographic project VEGLIA is inspired by this anniversary, based on a poem by the Italian poet Giuseppe Ungaretti who was a soldier on the Carso Mountains (Italy) during the conflict. On the night of December 23, 1915 he wrote the poem titled VEGLIA dedicated to his friend killed and denouncing the brutality of war. The photographs depict details of the monument "MARTYRS OF RESISTANCE" placed in the town of Reggio Emilia(Italy) this poetry: Vigil A whole night thrown near a comrade massacred with his mouth snarling towards the full moon with the swelling of his hands penetrating my silence I wrote letters full of love I’ve never been more attached to life Cima Quattro, 23-Dec-1915
