A search for our cultural roots through a journey in the Mediterranean Sea, a historical place but above all the cradle of civilisation and the origins of us Westerners. Finding Homer retraces Ulysses' Odyssey through the Mare Nostrum.  Ulysses," says the author of the photographs, "is the symbol of those who experiment, research, and amaze themselves, those who go in search of the why of things and the reasons for what they feel or encounter.  Ulysses is also the hero and demigod who, through a long journey and a series of obligatory stages, reconstitutes and recognises parts of himself. These stages, fixed and evoked in a series of black and white shots, also represent the phases that every man faces in order to evolve, the obligatory path to a conscious return to his own affections".  The themes of emigration and immigration, the comparison with global civilisations, changing families, everything that is normally called a crisis, the profound and collective transformation of the social structure, are therefore deliberately touched upon in this project which, starting from the search for man's inner myths, also narrates part of the emotional and social difficulties of the current period
