A road, over four hundred miles, four regions. From west to east, from Turin to Venice, crossing what for decades has been the most productive region of Italy. 428.832 is a long journey along the former State Road Padana Superiore, the SS11, a journey through memories of an industrial past that will never return and a future full of uncertainty. With an unemployment rate nearly doubled in the past decade, the average age of the population increasingly high, this piece of Italy is undergoing a radical transformation. Closed the factories, this part of northern Italy has fallen into a limbo from which it seems unable to get out.
428.832 is a slow journey, begun in 2014 and not yet completed. A solitary journey that soon turned into a dialogue between the photographer and the landscape, between the man and the reality of these places.
