Google Street View was launched on May 25 in 2007 and is available in Italy since October 29, 2008. Millions of “frozen” images are available for those who may be interested in it. A non-stop camera immortalized the most part of urban and rural spaces, of Europe and of the whole planet.
I’ve started using this limitless archive of digital images, collected by Google, for professional reasons, because of my job as a urban planner, until I realized that it was possible to accomplish compositive choices within this figurative patrimony. So I’ve started touching off images, obtaining reasoned images, exploiting this enormous visual endowment.
