Francesco Pergolesi was born in Venice in 1975. After finishing his law degree, dedicated himself entirely to photography. He is an artist-photographer whose work explores the territory of memory. Every single shot is a kind of a theater scene. His subjects are revealed in the lights and shadows reminiscent of Flemish paintings. He lives and works between Spoleto, Rome and Barcelona.
"When I was a child I used to walk free exploring my village streets. I remember I loved to spend time in the little cobbler or the grocery where my Grandmother sent me to shop. Time seemed to be extended and let me feel the sense of freedom. I grew up loving neighborhoods where human relationships were the center of life. I realized early on those places were disappearing as pushed by a mysterious force, a new era was coming." - Francesco Pergolesi
