In 2009 photographer Roger Generazzo arrived in the region of Benevento, Italy, a small province situated about 150 miles southeast of Rome, to visit and photograph the landscape where his ancestors had lived and worked for centuries. He had imagined the region would look like the landscape of Florence, as he had seen it in the charming movie A Room with a View.

Every time Roger gazed around landscape he wondered if his ancestors had left the region because of the same economic hardships he visibly witnessed stretching across it.
