Animas is a project that questions the notion of the sacred, through the comparison between man, animal and the divine, revisiting the question of ritual cycles over time. The images presented were produced in central Sardinia, a mostly arid, rocky, and often inaccessible territory between the Gennargentu mountain range and a wide, steep, remote valley. For centuries, this area has been dominated by a culture that revolves around the cycles of nature and all its elements: land, water, sun, and domestic and wild animals.
Numerous invasions have persisted over the centuries, followed by the invasiveness of modern civilization, without affecting these traditions, which have been preserved thanks to the meaning and importance that the local people give to their rituals, handed down from generation to generation.
