During my teens, I traveled several times to the States to visit my American side of the family. On July 2013, however, I tried my fortune and decided to leave my small Italian hometown for good. Once in the US, however, without any plan, I became completely clueless, culture-shocked, and lost. After a brief family visit in Northern Georgia, I moved to Los Angeles where I lived most of my time, then to Southern Florida for about three months. Before moving on, in the meantime, taking pictures was one of the few ways I could cope with that experience, trying to find some sense in my hazy American Dream.
