“I believe history holds a darkness, and must be illuminated by the dazzling light of memory; in order to do so, I used an arti cial, dim light to view my past self. Muri e is an a empt to retrace the sensations and highlights of my personal history: the childhood, adolescence, and youth I spent growing up near Assisi, in the Italian region of Umbria. I ipped a switch, and re ected on my origins, fortunate or unfortunate as they may be. I don’t know whether it was I who needed this, or my marvelous land.”

Emanuel Gargano
