Paolo Marchetti is a freelance photojournalist based in Rome. He worked in the film industry for over ten years, side by side with some of the most important directors of photography. Almost simultaneously his career as a photographer began, and he embarked on projects that took him all over the world. His photographs have received prestigious awards and acknowledgment and they have been published in some of the top international magazines - such as his latest work “Fever” on the rebirth of neofascism in Europe. We’ve met him in Milan while we were guests of MiCamera. He allowed us the intimate, personal interview that follows up. We’ve discovered a professional with a peculiar sensibility - a man who’s eager to investigate the life of individuals differing in origin, class or social condition (in “extreme” situations, too).

In this first part, Marchetti describes how his work is first and foremost about the creation of a relationship amongst people. He then moves on to telling the genesis and development of “Fever”.
