    The images from the series “VTE” are part of a work shot in the Genova Voltri port in 2012 to document the docking of the Chinese semi-submersible ship “Zhen Hua”, transporting two huge new cranes for the terminal. I spent some days photographing the complex unloading and assembling operations, carried on by the Chinese crew. These cranes will be used to disembark containers, most of which filled with Chinese goods. I was totally caught by the symbolic meaning of what I was observing: a physical representation of the Chinese economic conquer. But I was also impressed by the peculiar atmosphere among the workers and aboard the ship: a distant, different working mood, that projected me for some hours in the deep hearth of the Chinese heavy industry.
