Radici is a photographic project born from the need to know the reality of fellow girls who live in a foreign country, away from their traditions and with quite a few stereotypes on their shoulders. I wrote to a number of girls using social networks, explaining to them my project and asking if they wanted to share their story. I often asked myself which was the key element to describe that most of this girls see themselves as Italian but at the same time have a strong bond to their country. Hence the name of the project: Radici (roots in Italian), which are fixed in their personalities. For the same reason I decided to ask them to wear an accessory or traditional clothing for the portrait.
