"We are still dreaming" is a visual investigation of the community of young people under 30 who live in the Susa Valley, one of the wildest alpine valleys in Italy. This place holds the record for being the most militarized place in the country and for hosting the longest lasting protest movement ever in Italy: the No Tav. The movement, originated in the early 90s, aims to oppose the construction of the high-speed railway line Turin-Lyon, considered a waste of public money and a harm to the territory. An intimate narrative of this new generation of young people.

Trevisan's projects mainly focus on social issues, particulary related to the environment and anthropology and his photographs have been published in major magazines such as the New York Times, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Internazionale and more.
