The ancient theater – Nora – 2018
My project is related to the history of my homeland: Sardinia. The Roman theater of Nora is the only one known in the whole Sardinia. Today the light pollution do not allow you to fully enjoy the stunning view that they could live more than 2000 years ago. For this reason, with the authorization of the superintendent of cultural heritage, I have obtained access to immortalize what happened at night in front of the theater. To my amazement the Milky Way was positioned in a perfect way above the theater, creating harmony between the sky and the ground. My dream is to immortalize other historical sites during the night, to live again the experience of 2000 years ago.

My name is Maurizio Casula, I live in Sardinia, in a touristic town (Pula) with 7000 people. I’m born in Cagliari on 14th September 1985, and in 2002 I’d graduated in ad graphic on pc. I’ve always had the this passion about informatics and photography since I was a kid, but with the incoming of digital photography, I’ve been amazed about the chance to take pictures and post process them straight away. Since I was a kid I always used my parents camera, a polaroid. Years later I've bought various cameras before the DSRL. There’s no day I can live without photography giving all of myself to this passion spending time and money. In matter of facts in November I’ve realized my dream, being in Iceland, and like in a dream, I’ve been amazed by the Northern Lights. Now I want to dedicate my life to travel more around the world, taking pictures about different landscapes, without ever forget my homeland, Sardinia.
