This set of images portrays relatives and family members representing different generations, offering an emotional and intimate perspective. The use of the Italian language for the title of this project gives a very particular dimension to "the family", sparking visions of a group of people bound by love and blood. They live in function of one another, yet their relationship is often made difficult by cultural, personal and circumstantial factors; a setting that is a very common situation within many traditional communities.

This peculiar contrast finds a way through the images; not only in the shape of the subjects, their demeanor and moods; but also through the Chiaroscuro technique used to manage lighting throughout this photographic set.
