This research-based project is inspired by the archaeological heritage of Sardinia, Italy, and comprises photography, video and installation. As a springboard for it, we employed the archeological site “Giants of Mont’e Prama”, a necropolis where sculptures dating back to the Bronze Age have been found. Stemming from this, we conceived a narrative that involves multiple voices and expands over a broader reflection upon memory, fragmentation, handling of objects and migration of cultural material.
