Azimuths of Celestial Bodies

by Francesco Levy

There are as many ways to tell a story as there are to lie about it. Mine is a journey across the tales and personas that together formed the core of my family. A metaphorical flow of lives now merged into myself: the last of my kin.

The great wars that upset Europe during the last century are the common thread, the grim background and prime mover of the migrations that allowed the paths to intertwine.

A discourse on lineage, linking together what is with what has been: a restitution of memories that have been passed down to me, which I have made mine and freely reinterpreted.

It is a visual journal, an illustrated topography of the autobiographic journey undertaken to explore my own geography.
