Residences

Photographer Stefano Barattini, born in Milan in 1958, has focused his work on abandoned places for the past four years.
Like a modern explorer, he lets himself into deserted buildings and forsaken factories, run-down spaces that often echo with past and now forgotten luxuries. His goal? To create a photographic trace of the artistic and architectural heritage that is disappearing between demolitions, damages and intense renovations.
