    The towering regimented buildings that appear in this photograph series, 'The Forgotten Town', really emphasise the stark and lonely side of urban existence, like something from Orwell's 1984.The Forgotten Town is a 50-photo project realized using small wooden bricks in the shape of houses and buldings I found in an Italian toys shop and composed as they were very old photographs of an abandoned town. In almost all the shots there are only buildings in nocturnal scenes. Only in very few photos somebody appears. He is a visitor, he walks alone among the streets or he stays in front of doors. The idea of this work comes mainly from La città personale (The Personal Town), a short novel written by one of the most known contemporary Italian writers, Dino Buzzati. In this novel a man lives completely alone in an enourmous empty town. This man doesn't try to escape from this town and from its emptiness. He knows he is part of that. He says that he would even be able to describe every corner, every secret of this town but there is no sense to do that because nobody could imagine or believe his town really exists, even if there are millions like that. Only from time to time somebody comes and ask him for some explanation or for a visit, but it is very difficult to make some kind of explanation, because he is not able to speak the visitors' language. I think that this is a very beautiful way to speak about loneliness. Loneliness sometimes can be as great as a town. It can be like a labyrinth of roads and small streets. Sometimes we are not able to escape from loneliness because we do not want to escape from that. And nobody can understand any loneliness except his proper one.
