A glance across the contemporary city with irony and disillusion
I'm fond of Rome, architecture, photography and LEGO.
I integrated onto Rome some shocking elements, vehicles that belong to original LEGO sets.
The aim is to transform ordinary contexts in extraordinary ones, thus compelling the toys to get out of the idyllic and politically correct landscapes belonging to their perfect and idealistic cities (e.g. LEGOLAND), with the result of instilling in them those vices, virtues and desires typical of human beings.
How many would not wish to land by helicopter just beside the Colosseum?
I preferably used some sets in minifig scale, therefore made with few bricks so that the integration would look even more piercing.

I published on Behance the first six photos on December 2014 and the last four on March 2015, due to the worldwide success of this work, after the feature on designboom, I joined the to 10 images in this page.
