"By skilfully navigating between archive work, documentary investigation and art photography, Yvonne De Rosa has been able to derive from a commemorative commission by the Scuola Militare della Nunziatella an extremely powerful reflection on war, pain, loss, mourning, but also on the ideology underpinning the spirit of war and its tragic confrontation with reality. Images, graffiti, letters, old albums, paintings: an ionosphere of meanings that acquire meaning only when placed in a dramatic relationship with each other".
