After the war there was a desire to dance that shed light” are the words of Francesco Guccini, Italian songwriter, who accompanied me and illuminated my thoughts during the period of lockdown I spent in Rome in March and April 2020 due to the Covid19 pandemic. With the desire to break that sense of isolation, I went to visit my friends, near and far, and instinctively started to take portraits of them. I did it the only way I could in that period of social distance, sitting at my desk, taking a screenshot from my computer during a Zoom video call. Every person I portrayed was asked to share with me a song that was meaningful to them in the lockdown period to create a soundtrack of the project. Friends, and then also strangers, welcomed me in their homes, in their intimacy, willing to share moments of a new daily life, thoughts and reflections on this moment of isolation. -Fulvia Bernacca
