Census
by Gabriele Stabile

« Later they completed the census and Quinzio celebrated its final sacrifices. Seems like the registered citizen - except orphans and widows - were as many as 104.714 »

(Tito Livio, Ab urbe condita libri, Libro III, 1, 3.)



Nowadays the city of Rome counts roughly 3.000.000 people. 

Since the day I got back to live here, I dream about completing my own "census" and collect in a book photos that feature all of those 3.000.000 individuals. 

Probably I will dramatically fail. But, the more I grow up as a man and as a photographer, the more I'm attracted by lost battles. Things that are meant to remain unfinished.

Nevertheless, necessary.
