Extract from the I Was Here catalogue inset:

"On my travels I always walk around picking up brochures and getting posters from the walls of the town to use for my collages. I tore up the words Italiana 2014 to paste into my little artist book and drew a quick sketch of the town’s beautiful bell tower. These became the inspiration for the sketch and the poem.
