There is a little island, close to the Southern coast of Iceland: its name is Heimaey. This story is like the island itself: it has no real beginning and no concrete end, but it just shows a way of existing. So the land, so the people. Un’isola minuta affianca la costa meridionale dell’Islanda: il suo nome è Heimaey. La storia che segue ha i contorni dell’isola stessa: non traccia un punto d’inizio, nè vuole chiudersi concretamente in una fine, ma si limita a descrivere un certo modo di esistere. Così per la terra, così per i suoi abitanti.

The project is divided in 2 parts. The first one depicts Heimaey from the outside: its landscapes, streets, houses. Slowly, the project gets to the second part, where the human presence is the protagonist: Heimaey is approached from the inside, depicting some of its inhabitants and their peculiarities.

The house welcomes the vivacious, the wise, and the crazy. It welcomes the rain, the wind. Never judging, never labeling any living being. It lets weeds grow and walls crumble. This house taught me the smells of wood, rust, motor oil. It sharpened my ear to the song of the piano, to the strings of the cello, to Bach, to Gurdjieff. It gave me a taste for liveliness, and has left me with memories that continue ever still to frame and build me, much like the bricks in my own home.
