Italy –

Olivia has grandparents coming from four different nationalities. Italy, Germany, Egypt and Romania. A child who embodies these diverse cultures, traditions, languages and religions. In daily family life, you can clutch, unaware, fragments from common experiences . Travelling through the four places of origin of her family, there are more similiarities than differences. This project, a gift to Olivia, my dearest daughter, is above all a gift to all those people living today, feeling at home in every nook and corner of this world.
