"Ah bourgeoisie... The beauty is that life proves you right, and that's what you want it to be, leaving no room for anyt(taken from the film "Uccellacci e Uccellini" directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini). The project stems from the idea of the contrast between a modern world dominated by rationality and false myths such as wealth and the real world dominated by emotions and where evolution is only decay and anxious nostalgia. The middle class, in the desire for zeroing and rewriting, seems to choose the ruin, the dilapidated house, the urban spaces and the unfinished factories as the ideal icon.
