I am a painter and sculptor and I live in Berlin. In Naples, where I was born and I lived for several years, I started to collect things like objects or cardboard boxes that you can find easyli along the street and which are a sign that the city doesn't know how to handle the waste as resource to be reneweted. I decided to work with those materials giving them a new form and meaning. Working with poor materials, it seems to me, in a time in wich many Countries still living a pre- industrial condition,the right way. The waste of more "developed" World, if not dangerous,can be a different and precious resource.
