During a significant period of my life, I lived for almost a year in Morigerati, a village situated on top of a mountain in Southern Italy, with a population of only two hundred inhabitants. It was in this place, where my grandparents were born, that I began an in-depth research into my family's history and dedicated myself to cataloging sixty proverbs, tongue twisters, and riddles in the ancient dialect.
With the aim of sharing and preserving my research, I conceived the first edition of the Morigerati's picture. The graphic project was designed to capture the rural essence of the region and to provide a connection to the contemporary. The main target audience was the six young residents, the only ones in that small community, as well as the children and grandchildren of immigrants from that region, now scattered across Argentina, Brazil, Germany and United States.
This project was carried out independently.
