The "6 Opuscules" are the result of journeys made on the six roads that connect Alvito to the surrounding villages. To realize where I was, I wanted to experience the distance, the route, the landscape, and the relationship with surrounding settlements. In the North of Tagus River, I am used to see small villages that are oriented by only one road, by a single axis that defines their connection to the exterior, making it is difficult to understand where they begin and end: in the Alentejo I found spaces surrounded by silence and for long extensions of emptyness.
