Riccardo Maria Chiacchio I


"Chille ch’e’ ncuolle a tte n’e’ rroba toja” (What you’re wearing isn’t yours). 
So goes the chant sung by the washerwomen of Napoli, in one of the earliest examples of Neapolitan song, dating back to the late twelfth century.
This is a project about connections.
Mothers connecting to their sons, bodies connecting to fabric, faces connecting to their ancient features.
All clothes have been washed in the Mediterranean Sea and been exposed to the ashes of Mount Vesuvius.
All clothes will preserve the memories I have given them.
All subjects were born and raised in Napoli. Riccardo Maria Chiacchi
