CHAPTER I / THE DAY AFTER - Ongoing

October 9, 2008, 5:30 pm / 7:30 pm my father dies. I was traveling. I reached his body the next day.

October 10, 2008, I have an heritage that I do not want. I inherited a home in a country where I do not live, I inherited the home of the wonderful childhood holidays, I inherited a home where my grandfather still lives.

October 20, I started the practices of succession, quota division and land registry.

After 9 years, I'll sell the house. In all these years I've been able to explore all the shelters that the house was hiding. I have discovered so many stories, stories of migrants, nomads, war-fugitives, stories of people: my family.

After years of research I discovered that in the network there are many information and pictures of my family.

So, I decided to start this long term project. From that moment, the House is my recurring dream.
