Aunt Janna, an Italian housewife
Janna is an Italian housewife from the 50s. She has spent all her
life raising her children and taking care of her husband. Always
busy with household chores, she rarely leaves her place if not to
visit the grocery around the corner. From when she gets up in the
morning, she starts a busy routine of laundry, ironing, and
Janna is not well informed about the outside world. Big
political issues rarely engage her, but she has other very valuable
qualities. She has a joyful spirit and a down-to-earth, wise attitude
Her poetry of small things, as I like to call it, has always been
a great inspiration to me.
This project is my tribute to her world and her life-style.
