ROMA PROGETTO MEMORIA
Trastevere, Rome, Italy
Roma Progetto Memoria – Rome Memory Project
During a flood that happened several years ago, all of my family’s photos, which I had in the basement, were water damaged to the point beyond recognition. The Italian history and memories had become a big blur. From this incident, the seeds of a very personal performance piece were born. Rome Memory Project brought together three sisters in the location of their childhood apartment.
Through video projection, abstract distorted photo imagery came alive as culture, memory and childhood visions were revisited. In English and Italian, in song and movement, we recreated our past, reclaimed our history. This special event was the first time the three sisters were together in Rome since childhood.
