Genius Loci

Genius Loci is a Latin expression that indicates the "essence of the place", its unique and indistinguishable nature. The Genius Loci is an identity bearer.

The hypothesis that I make with this visual proposal is that the Genius Loci of abandoned places is the primary engine for a new rebirth in which the "genius" of individuals who have stayed, who return or who simply go, are add the "genius" of the place. Pollination between this variety of individuals and the place where they meet allows identifying cultural roots and shaping a new identity and a history of its own.
