Diary of an Italian Border-worker
2015

text by Alessia Venditti

Diary of an Italian Border-worker è un lavoro che parla del viaggio e parla del confine insieme. Il termine “viaggio” prevede che si varchi un confine, mentre il concetto di “confine” contiene in sé quello di limite, di valore massimo intransitabile. Far convivere le immagini di attraversamento e valico pare un’astrazione, eppure le immagini di Fabrizio Albertini si snodano in un dialogo silente, fatto della loro coesistenza in una consuetudine, in un familiare appuntamento con la quotidianità.
Toni alti ed espressività leggera si intrecciano in immagini lievi, calibrate, dal candore un po’ ceruleo, un po’ porpora di una realtà vicina e al contempo lontana.

Diary of an Italian Border-worker combines the concept of travel with that of border. By the term “travel”, one is supposed to cross a border. On the other hand, the concept of “border” itself implies that of limit, seen as the top value beyond which no one can go. You may say it is chimeric to bring together border and crossing images. However, Fabrizio Albertini’s shots follow one another and silently speak each other, coexisting in a familiar rendezvous with everyday life. Strong spirit and light expressiveness intertwine with each other to create delicate and balanced images. Their cerulean and purple candour represents a close but, at the same time, distant reality.
