Blebla – “Prato”

Blebla is an Italian rapper I really wanted to include in this project. In his song “Prato” he describes the town he was born in enhancing the good and the bad aspects of the modern society.

“In Prato, when you say “ciao,” it is possible that 35.000 people answer “Nǐ hǎo.”

Check at 1:33 to see his Chinese friend saying in Pratese dialect: “What are you talking about? I am from Prato more than you are…!”

I had the great chance to photograph both of them, Blebla and Alessandro!
