I spent my childhood in Leno, a small town in the Po Valley: I was about 115 cm tall. The building, built by my grandfather who was a mason, was square in shape and composed of a very low basement and a mezzanine floor. I had free access to the whole basement and the afternoon hours flowed calmly between homework, play and TV. The windows of the lower floor were narrow, long and placed too high up for me. The mezzanine floor was inaccessible to me. The bedrooms were there and above all, the “nice” kitchen and living room; never used by the family but always ready for the arrival of an unexpected guest. Every day, after we had launched in the mezzanine kitchen, my grandmother went upstairs to run the polisher over the marble floors. 30 years later I photographed those rooms, they still looked the same except for some furnishings and knick-knacks. I did it by positioning the camera at a height of 115 cm.
