An important and prestigious medical site of the 30’s, a construction with absolutely modern building characteristics donated to the National Fascist Institute of Social Security (INFPS) by princess Demidoff in 1935, it was the shelter for Somali asylum applicants in 2004, and is currently empty.
I returned to this same place for approximately a year in different moments and for different reasons. Then I started attending it assiduously. During the last months I could see it changing: small changes although it was abandoned. Objects which had become familiar were placed in different spots or were no longer there.
At a certain point my attendances were proportional to the perceived changes: the need had become that of registering them before loosing their sight.
