Padua is a city in northern Italy, close to Venice, with a history that dates back several centuries: it was built in pre-Roman times, as testified to by its numerous archaeological remains, and its multiple facets reflect the various stages of its development / The historic center is characterized by a medieval nucleus, surrounded by later buildings and by a large periphery dating from the second postwar period / The life of the city has always been marked by the presence of the University, which is organized into different faculties, and by the countless students attending it / Padua is part of the Po Valley, an area known for its strong and massive industrialization throughout the 20th century / My connection with the city dates from my high school years / In addition to school, I came here for my first punk concerts, to skate and to rehearse with my music group / Now, although I study in Venice, for three years I have been living in Padua / The project 60 Minutes Cities gave me the opportunity to rediscover, analyze, experience and develop a clearer and more thorough documentary and analytical approach to the sounds and noises that characterize, contextualize and communicate the urban fabric / Thanks to Bivouac Recording for their support and trust //

October 13, 2017 / 20:46 / 45.417721, 11.880126 / Stazione Ferroviaria- "Ci Scusiamo Per Il Disagio" ("We Apologize For The Inconvenience") / Da tre anni abito a Padova, studiando presso l’Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia sono anch’io un pendolare sulla tratta che unisce la città del santo alla città lagunare / Con un treno regionale veloce l’attraversata dura 30 minuti scarsi, i due centri distano circa 45km / Viaggio su questa tratta tre o quattro volte a settimana / Spesso e volentieri, quando il treno subisce un guasto lungo la linea e ritarda, la fredda e pacata voce elettronica che esce dagli altoparlanti della stazione recita una frase che, ormai, suona come un’ironica litania per lo sfortunato pendolare: “il treno ha maturato 70 minuti di ritardo, ci scusiamo per il disagio” / Non resta che attendere e far passare il tempo //

For three years I have been commuting between Padua, where I live, and Venice, where I study at the Academy of Fine Arts / With a fast regional train, the 45 km journey takes 30 minutes / I do this trip three to four times a week / On the numerous occasions when the train is delayed due to a breakdown, the cool electronic voice coming out from the station speakers intones the unescapable litany that is the curse of the unlucky commuter: "The train is 70 minutes late, we apologize for the inconvenience” / You just have to wait and let the time pass //

About The Artist:

 I was born in Padua in 1992 and have been living there for the past three years / Currently I am a student in New Art Technologies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice / Two years ago I became involved in field recording, while also developing my personal research in musique concrète / Archive, documentation and memory layers are essential elements of field recording and of my own work / In the latter I pursue a variety of interests, in particular the hybridization of the natural and digital environments / The union of these two inputs generate unprecedented paradigms that help me decode the multiple facets of contemporary reality / I am co-founder of the cultural association Terateros with Daniela Almansi and Chiara Masiero Sgrinzatto /
