Giovanni is a former employee of Italsider in Bagnoli. While everyone is pulling the structure apart, he goes against the tide: he picks up, and takes home, pieces of industrial archaeology that would otherwise go lost and destroyed. This is his way of responding to the cancellation of the memory of a great collective experience such as working in an industry.
