The DEBuilding project was born from the specific commission of its curator Simona Ottolenghi, who asked Caterina to interpret the contemporary architecture in Rome, work of internationally renowned architects, who represent a new and little known face of the City eternal.

The shots were taken in various districts of the city, focused above all on projects completed in the new millennium, including the Maxxi, the Auditorium, the Città del Sole complex, the Settimia Spizzichino bridge and the Europarco Business Park, an ambitious project of a large business center, a sort of Defense Capitolina, located in the south quadrant close to the EUR district.

Following her inclination to transform reality into something different, and a predilection for the use of digital data corruption techniques, Caterina elaborated the source images by searching for an almost surreal visual experience of architectural works. Through contaminations, decompositions, deconstructions and graphic reworkings, an imaginary world emerges from Caterina's works, in which buildings, static and fixed subjects, move freely, creating visual abstractions and creative visions.
