CORAGGIO D’ESSERE (and its other version Valor de Ser) is a resin sculpture bust of a man. It it the portrait of Fabio Caselli, an Italian immigrant in Mexico. Francesca saw his as a king, so she crowned him with black, elegant coral.

The title means Courage to be and it it the most important value to Fabio.

It is part of the collection Identitá Transitorie. The artist worked at this project between 2013 and 2014, during a moment of personal crisis and doubt about where she belonged. She had been spent 6 years in Mexico, and was not sure to want to stay there. She use this proyect to connect with other italians in Mexico and collected stories and pictures to find a common migration patron to mirror herself.

During this period she met wonderful people and discover that herself, not a geographical place, is her home. She decided to remain in Mexico to explore more and to continue to work.

The result of this introspective journey, was a collection of resin sculptures and engravings, all portraits of her peers. Any piece was based of hundreds of pictures taken during the interviews and meeting between artist and people, and the fantastic elements added are the interpretations of anecdots, moments, preferences and lifestyle expressed by the models.
