Television recording of my TV interview on CANALE ITALIA.
The art critic Antonio Castellana talks with tree photographer Luca Zampini in the series “Percorsi D’arte” conducted by him (Arte Italia, TV channel 125).
I, excited, tell a little about myself, my background, my mother (the artist Carolina Marisa Occari), the Ferrara Photoclub, the FIAF my next exhibitions. But above all I talk about my life project HUGS. The Tree Calling tied to the trees and moved by my love for them.
During the broadcast, about twenty minutes or so, 6 of my fine art photographic prints are shown. The same who intrigued Prof. Italo Zannier…
Have a nice vision!
A sincere thanks to Dr. Castellana for inviting me to this interview on CANALE ITALIA – 21 May 2021.
ITALO ZANNIER: The emotion of a meeting
Really an unexpected and exciting meeting that with Maestro Italo Zannier. I’ll tell you how it went…. Last week at the end of the television program “Percorsi d’Arte” in which, interviewed by the art critic Castellana, I tell my project about trees, the editorial staff of Canale Italia informs me that among the phone calls received there is that of Prof. Italo Zannier.
Italo Zannier? The photographer, academic and pioneer of the history of photography in Italy? I think of a candid camera and ask “It’s a joke, isn’t it?”. “No, no. He saw your works on TV and said he would like to know you. He left his number so you call him back”.
Well, it wasn’t a joke…
Being able to meet Prof. Italo Zannier, spend a whole morning with him talking about art and photography and listen to his comments on my work was a unique and exciting experience that I will never forget. And he also told me that we will see each other again!
I thank Prof. Zannier and his son Giulio for the welcome, the time they dedicated to me and their beautiful words on my project.

In my HUGS. TheTree Calling trees I embrace are almost always isolated. In fact, I rarely take pictures of attached trees and the reason is due to the fact that I can not perceive their individuality. It may happen, however, that if some trees are close together but in an open space, I feel them as an unicum. As if they supported each other and their energy came out multiplied by this closeness. Here’s one of those situations.
Below are the other cases, so far, in which I had felt the same feeling. In order:
White poplar, Francolino – The beech trees of Monte Cucco – The two giants – White poplars 2 – Symmetries.
