As the complexity of the economic situation creates barriers between the haves and have nots, we are also assisting to a resurgence of national pride. National Panties is a project that, first presented at the AND Festival and showcased in the Guardian, speaks of the contemporary social realities which are increasingly made of people left wearing, as the title says, just their panties and the national pride.

The project started in Italy and will travel across the world, generating a series of images made of ‘panties, landscapes and people.’

The panties displayed in different urban and iconic landscapes across the globe, will create a unique collection of what is the remainder of people’s aspirations at the beginning of the 21st century.
