All places abandoned by humans keep whispering their presence, words and sometimes poetry.​ ​If decadence makes them inanimate, light gives them an immortality with a melancholy aura that leaves room for imagination. Nicola Bertellotti describes the moment by giving a meaning to the etymology of the word photography  which derives from the Greek: light (phôs) and handwriting / writing / to draw (graphè). Whether they are "industrial archaeologies" or places of worship, historic noble residences of immense beauty or nature which takes up its spaces, Nicola manages with his photographs to write other words, those that we cannot hear but which we can feel.​ ​Its strong aesthetic character blurs the images that oscillate from the scenographic to the cinematographic, from the world of make believe to staging.
