Chi è Lei ?

texts and drawings: Florence Cats
photos, documents and graphic design: Joseph Charroy

In Italian chi è lei means who is she. This book is the result of a journey, we set out to follow in the footsteps of my great-grandmother who was born in 1900 in Busseto, a small town in Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy. But here  Lei does not refer to anyone in particular. The question is open, undefined, unresolved. Our research is based on doubt, vulnerability, disappearance. The question is above all addressed to our ways to look at the world. In Italian chi è lei? can also mean who are you?
