Scampia, Naples. In the heart of the neighbourhood, amongst tall buildings and stretches of concrete paving, there is a large public park, La Villa Comunale: a natural oasis, where people meet in search of a space to feel free. The whirring sound of helicopters and police sirens ring among the voices of the neighbourhood residents, who come to the fore thanks to a filter of nature and beauty. I spent about three years in the park in order to talk about a suburban neighbourhood, starting from this unique location: The Park. Being here, listening, amongst the trees and the flowers, seemed enough to restore the complexity of what is outside.
