Leisure Time – Massimo Siragusa, 2005
Can you talk about this project?
The idea was to tell the tales of Italian people on guided holidays. I went to various playgrounds and other places of mass tourism. I wanted to understand what it was like to spend time in artificial places where the beaches, palm trees and fountains were made of plastic. I wanted to understand as to why in Italy, a place where we can find extraordinary natural beauty, many people chose articificial rather than the real thing.
