The palace of crossed destinies

Forty years of life in a difficult building, in a neighborhood on the Roman outskirts

The new Corviale also called" Serpentone "is a building about 1 km long that rises on the western outskirts of Rome, born in the late '70s to deal with the housing crisis. Since its birth this place has been synonymous with decay and crime so much so that it has become one of the symbolic neighborhoods of Rome. History sees men and women catapulted into a place without infrastructure, still wearing the wounds caused by the tearing of the mass eviction, forced to live together by force or for reason. People who have had to reorganize their lives with great difficulty, trying to reinvent it, to color it, to live it with new rules and above all with do-it-yourself. My intent was to give a voice and make known the human of the weakest or rather the "invisible" ones that are often forgotten, or talked about in a stereotypical way .
