Ape/Car instagram

This is my new project, for now called “Apecar”.
These young Italians, use this legendary Italian transport called “APE Piaggio” like a car.

The first sighting of Apecar took place on May 2012.

The “Ape Piaggio” was born in 1948, when Italy was still devastated by war. The lack means of transport was evident, but many could not afford to buy a four-wheel. Piaggio came the idea of ​​building a commercial vehicle on three wheels ( bike+van) derived from a scooter. The first model was built from Vespa.
Even today, the Ape is for Italian teenagers a precocious desire to have a car, as their older friends. Change look, customizing appearance, sometimes the power of the engine, represents the final stage of their adolescence; defy the gravity laws running on three wheels above the speed limit, it’s essential to obtain a status symbol.

Il secondo tema; “Ragioni per restare in italia”

“Un italiano su tre vuole vivere all’estero”. Lo afferma un ritaglio di giornale sul frigo di casa mia. Non ho idea del perché sia lì, né chi lo abbia messo, eppure lo tengo a testimoninza di un desiderio, quasi un monito, che rinnovo quotidianamente. Perché vogliamo andare via dall’Italia? perché vogliamo rimanere? Le risposte in entrambe i casi hanno il sapore del luogo comune, tanto plausibili quanto discutibili e neanche troppo dissimili da quelle di francesi, svizzeri o albanesi (..per citare a caso). La convinzione è che all’estero si vive meglio. Quale sia questo estero e cosa sia meglio, è tutto da stabilire.

Ragioni per restare è il tema di questo numero di Voices e, ritagli di giornale a parte, ci è sembrato interessante poterlo rappresentare fotograficamente chiedendo ai partecipanti un contributo. Un sondaggio che si occupa di Italia e di italiani, voluto non per stimolare un senso di appartenenza o di orgoglio nazionale, ma per raccontare scelte di vita proprie o altrui. Un tema che ha generato rinunce, difficoltà e silenzi tra i fotografi invitati, per questo nel mostrarvi le immagini vi chiedo: quali le ragioni per andarsene? …e aspetto le foto.

Uno dice famiglia – niente più – solo famiglia, lo dice a una schiera di fotografi professionisti invitati a partecipare e attende una risposta. Immagina legami di sangue, rapporti di convivenza, discendenza e appartenenza; immagina amore e dolore. Loro, gli interpellati, rispondono con fotografie di una quotidianità rassicurante. La famiglia, nonostante tutto, conserva la sua accezione positiva, priva di ombre e di inquietudini da cronaca nera e si racconta attraverso lenzuola di lino e borotalco, anziane signore e vecchi ricordi, panni al sole e tavole apparecchiate. Una felice varietà di interpretazioni che premia chi guarda, costringendolo ogni tanto – solo ogni tanto – a funamboliche riflessioni sull’idea di famiglia.

Rapida Food

In Mexico there are many varieties of snacks that are available at any time day or night. They call it “Comida Callejera” (Street Food) and it is sold by street vendors, often from a portable makeshift stall. Comida Callejera is meant as a fast and convenient finger food that is more affordable than a typical restaurant or supermarket.Although some of the offerings span entire regions and others the entire country much of the street food culture in Mexico is based on local dishes and have not spread beyond their places of origin.

The Chain

Mauro took part last project curated by Pilkington, responded to the title set by Matt Eich:

‘The Chain’ is the latest project curated by Stuart Pilkington, (curator of The Alphabet Project What is England? and the 50 States Project).

Stuart invited 107 photographers from around the globe to participate in the project at the beginning of 2011.

And in February 2011 each photographer submitted a title/instruction to inspire a photograph by another person in the project. The photographers were connected like links in a chain. They were asked to respond to the title set by the person directly behind them. The title they set was directed to the photographer directly in front of them.

For example, Elizabeth Gordon responded to the title set by Andrea Chu. Hiroshi Watanabe responded to the title set by Elizabeth Gordon. Harry Borden responded to the title set by Hiroshi Watanabe. And so on and so on.

By 18th June 2011 all 107 photographers submitted their photographs and at the end of June all the images were published on the Chain website. Please click here to see all the images that have been submitted.
