The Nuraghes project was triggered by an intense curiosity, an urge of knowing what this great towers really meant. Such research comes as a natural thing, especially when you are born a Sardinian, like me. The Nuraghes are mysterious towers, unique to the island of Sardinia, which is located in the centre of the Mediterranean sea. So, I began my exercise of chasing the light and look for the best preserved towers. However trying to establish an inner contemplative approach with the matter, leading to understand who built them, why and when, I felt really free while fulfilling this project. I believe that creativity is not much about having ideas, but more like following a passion and doing it at the very best of one’s capabilities. So I needed a slow, contemplative approach which was absolutely necessary, considering the nature of the subject. The Nuraghes are not an instant awe, they do not reveal their character easily, they are often built in great harmony with nature and, above all, they are not used to frequent visitors. This towers are ancient, they were built during the bronze and iron ages, and now they are slowly dissolving, nature is taking them back, therefore I felt that a picture would survive us both, preserving their memory and their secrets forever.
