23.09.2020 – THE PASSENGER SWEDEN is outThe new @thepassengermagazine guide to Sweden published by @iperborea with photography by me will be presented today 23 September 2020 at 19.00 in Via Argelati 40, Milano.

In June I was commissioned to take pictures for TP Sweden. For a month I travelled across Sweden to illustrate ten articles that describe the country today. I took a ferry to the island of Runmarö, in the Stockholm archipelago, to meet entomologist and writer Fredrik Sjöberg, author of The Fly Trap, amongst others. At the harbour Sjöberg picked me up with a “flak-moped”, a three-wheeler with a metal tray in the front where I sat like a princess, enjoying the ride.


Happy to be part of this year’s Vårutstillingen, aka The Spring Exhibition, which opened on March 5th at Fotogalleriet, Oslo. I will be holding an artist talk on April 2nd.

‘‘ This year’s edition of the Spring Exhibition is a mediation on climate change, terror and treats  that affect the Earth’s status quo’’

The exhibition is curated by Sverre Strandberg and organized by the Norwegian Association of Fine Arts Photographers @fffotografer in collaboration with @fotogalleriet_oslo

The show can be visited until 5th April.

This is half of the final amount of sand – 2 tons – that I used for my installation at Fotogalleriet, Oslo.

23-27.05.2016 – On assignment in Malta

I was sent by the Trip magazine to the islands of the Maltese archipelago (Malta, Gozo, Comino and Cominotto), in the Mediterranean sea. My task was to do a personal reportage on Valletta, the capital of Malta. Besides this, our crew, composed of three journalists, two bloggers and the tourism authorities of Malta, also visited and interviewed a lot of interesting people that told us a bit of the history of the Maltese islands.

This is Arnold Grech, a professional beekeeper and a man that knows how to handle life. Last week he had a heart attack but he’s already back under the sun working with his bees. [Melleiha, Malta].Giulia Mangione-3495

At sunset in a little stone house in the middle of a vineyard we met Marilú, who showed us how to make pastizzi, traditional Maltese snacks. [Siggiewi, Malta].Giulia Mangione-4240

Salvo is one of the four inhabitants of Comino island. He has been abroad twice: the first time to see a small fishing boat in Catania, Sicily. The second time to buy it. The trip back took 3 days, where he slept on the deck of the little fishing boat under the stars. Salvo is not afraid of anything. He says that when you live in a place with so few people you have to learn to rely on your own. [Santa Marija Bay, Comino island].Giulia Mangione-4300

Emmanuel has been making salt for 47 years under the sun of the island of Gozo. He started by manually pouring sea water into the flats, then used to wait a week until the water evaporated and he could scrape off the salt with a broom. Later on he started using a water pump. [Zebbug, Gozo].
