The residence experience had inspected the environment of Rivarolo Canavese with a special attention to unreachable places: the industrial buildings of the two large factories of Rivarolo (Salp and Vallesusa) and the Orco River. The artist has interpreted these places according to his own young and foreign sensitivity. The place of residence has become a container in which telling the outside but even himself.
