Ave Maria 2019
An investigation about the aediculae in the Italian Peninsula and the adoration of the Virgin Mary. Through a documentary approach, the series returns a point of view about these small shrines that are left all over Italy. Probably nothing more than a piece of history of our ancient culture. Yet, it’s true that the sacred dimension is inherent in the human experience; dating back to the origins of man, as in the apotropaic rites to ward o the "bad luck", or the manifestations of parietal art linked to the propitiation of hunting. The function of these aediculae is to absolve the sense of devotion to the divinity, as the Virgin Mary in this series, and to avoid the sense of perdition that every human being can feel during his life. A light in the night for every religious person as a reference point in the existence.
