Parco Romana, an urban-scale redevelopment project in Milan's Porta Romana District, interprets the industrial legacy of the site while reanimating it with contemporary programs centered on an ethos of sustainability. The scheme rethinks a large, disused railway yard that has divided the area for more than a century.

Carola Guaineri has traveled extensively since early 2000 for fashion photography. She started photographing backstage during fashion shows in Paris, New York, and Milan on commission but she never forgot her analog large format cameras and negative films to develop and print in her darkroom in Milan. Carola is a master printer and she has a large archive of negatives that she has shot over the years. She also continues to print negatives from the family archive. Her grandparents were passionate about photography. But, which are the contemporary photos, and which are those taken now more than seventy years ago? Whatever the answer, Carola’s creative process remains intrinsically linked to the alchemy of the darkroom.

Every photograph is printed by Carola Guaineri in the darkroom.
