‘Nzuliddu (Vincenzo from the Sicilian dialect) is a photography and video project focused on man and his roots. Those roots which, if neglected, will cause the loss of his original human identity tied to nature, the earth, its rhythms, leaving him at the mercy of fate.
With this project, Simone Aprile with his images and Giuseppe La Rosa with his documentary wanted to capture the essence of peasant culture, stop it and protect it, telling it in pictures, voices and sounds.The project is a journey through a year (2011) in the life of ‘Nzuliddu and Concettina, a couple of farmers in Modica (Sicily). A year of shooting marked by the rhythm of the four seasons, from the rising and setting of the sun, by the gestures of fatigue and those from the rest from farm work and rites of the house.
