L’ETÀ DELL’ADOLESCENZA

THE AGE OF ADOLESCENCE

During adolescence everything changes and shakes. It’s a continuous reversal of emotions that sends you into a tailspin. Growing up is this, turning the world upside down almost as a game, looking for the impossible.

IN TRIESTE #2

In this series, some illustrations originally made for In Trieste Magazine have been partially modified, removing the masks that hid the faces in the original series. The original series had been made during the pandemic days. I decided to modify some scenes, removing the masks, to show how the everyday life of certain moments has remained unchanged over time.

IN TRIESTE MAGAZINE

Illustrations for the magazine In Trieste, mostly inspired by the daily life of the city of Trieste during the pandemic period. Many of the situations described are the same as they have always been in this city, the substantial difference is the omnipresent presence of masks.

The titles of these illustrations often refer to dialect words typical of this beautiful border town.

 

COVID JOURNAL

During the lockdown I started a collaboration with the New York based artist Peggy Roalf.

Together we have created a “creative dialogue” based on the visual and emotional suggestions that emerged in those difficult days.

The project is called Covid Journal and the illustrations make up a virtual gallery on IG under the hashtag #alberti_roalf_covidjournal.
