Ka'kao

In collaboration with IULM UNIVERSITY of Milan, with coordination of historian Massimo De Giuseppe and the director Giuseppe Carrieri curated by Sergio Pappalettera, StudioProDesign, this collection was exposed in November and Dicember 2021 in the Exposition Hall of Iulm University in the show "Ka'kao - the secret tree".
This is just a part of the whole photographic collection. These shoots try to steal the silent spirit of the tree that still whispers in the wind today, pervades the bodies and places of nature, relives in rituals, and intimately links the past of the elderly to the future of the young. They are faces and they are matter, they ask to be observed as they embrace the roots of their culture. The cocoa journey has no end, it is the center of these populations's life with the dignity and eloquence of common life.
