Mario Spada loves his city, with all its incredible people and complex situations. And he loves taking pictures of it. He does it with a personal way to get through those places, telling stories of possible lives, both the happy ones, both the sad ones. But something that is constant in his production is his gentle and amused eye, that is part of what he experiences, with a brotherly attitude. The result are strong pictures, always smart, never banal.
