“The rooftop was the only view onto  the world during the lockdown days and that is where I met Giuditta, my neighbour. We met and told each other about ourselves and the distance turned into closeness.

In that suspended place she shared her ideas with me  made of notes and images. I loved the stories.

So I staged it, I imagined a dress and fabrics, nothing artificial, all very simple and pure as it was the Giuditta’s wish: «to wear a special dress that has the power to turn that moment into a dream».”
