There Is No Calm After The Storm

In October 2018, North-eastern Italy was hit by a strong atmospheric depression called "Vaia". More than two years later, the emergency is not over and the consequences of Vaia storm are still tangible.

Mixing archive photography and reportage, satellite and microscope imagery, first-hand accounts and scientific theories, this project aims to tell the story of Vaia. Conceived when the emergency was already over and developed over the course of 3 years, it analyzes what has happened with the time to ponder causes, responsibilities, consequences, opportunities and future outlooks, while raising awareness about climate change.

The work was born in collaboration with the TESAF and DAFNAE departments at the University of Padua.
