I met Marcello at the Cavallerizza Reale in Turin. I chose this place, a former military barracks in the center of Culture and Art, because I wanted a completely black room. I had already visited the center on the occasion of the photographer Peter Lindbergh's exhibition dedicated precisely to portraits and the dialogue between them.

A nice guy with many tattoos, eyes full of life, modest and easy going. His works are characterized by the strong dynamism and the feeling of movement that I wanted to transfer within the portrait. Watching his videos where he used LEDs and the oculus, I chose to photograph him in a large dark room illuminated by the lines he designed himself. The shooting took several hours as well as Marcello's immense patience who, in the cold and in short sleeves, in specific phases He was forced to remain still to allow the best results of the photos taken in pose B and not simply executed. The feeling that my husband and I had was that we had known Marcello for a long time. A feeling also had with different artists.

In fact, the beauty of this project, beyond the realization of the portraits, lies in having met new artists to deal with, new ties, synergies and new friendships.

After a few souvenir photos together we promised to talk to each other soon, and so it was.

Sara Aliscioni



Sara has been dedicating herself to photography and photographic calligraphy since 2006. She matured the artistic matrix from her father, musician and composer, who led her to explore not only the world of theater, to which she dedicated herself for several years both as an interpreter as a stage photographer, but also of music, studying classical music theory and playing bass for several years, as well as cinema, influenced by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia where her father worked as a sound engineer.

In addition to the various courses on photographic techniques and workshops dedicated to travel reportage, he attended the training promoted by the MoMA on photography as a means of individual artistic expression, as a technique for exploring and documenting the reality as well as a tool for communication and criticism of society and our culture. Subsequently, driven by an interest in history that draws on photojournalism as a primary source, she followed the course on the use of images, films and their historical interpretation in the 20th century with the University of London & Royal Holloway.

Among the activities followed, Sara has curated various photographic backstage works, the last of these at the Macro Museum in Rome. After having increased her knowledge, she has also matured her style thanks to the continuous and daily training of the artist Alessandro Bavari.

United by photography as an expression of art, as well as by their personal bond, together they created the book Kill the Covid! a rural horror photographic mockumentary set in Italy, faithful to their artistic, visionary and provocative style.


The photographic choice oriented towards Reportage and Street Photography, features strictly black and white calligraphy. Inspired by the language of the Hungarian director Béla Tarr, Sara Aliscioni offers images made of symbolism, drama and poetry in an objective but at the same time sentimental interpretation, describing the harsh reality that sees man at its center in familiar and everyday contexts. The common thread is always the search for beauty even when what surrounds the subject is decadent, dark and forgotten.
