Fourth space

According to Matteo Meschiari, the “Fourth space” is “the open space that has no economic or social use […] it is inhabitable, inaccessible, an interstice with no passageway, a threshold with nothing beyond it”. Pietro Motisi searches for this space among the Sicilian urban landscapes, and finds it in the marks left by the Second World War, in 1970s construction sites that never reached their conclusion, in the cities rebuilt after the 1968 earthquake.
This series, shot entirely on film, is only the first chapter of a project that the photographer is currently committed to.
