A good food shopping list is always the first step in reducing waste.
C’è una sola cosa che si scrive solo per se stesso, ed è la lista del- la spesa [There is only one thing you write only for yourself, and that is your food shopping list].
— Umberto Eco
Secondo me non è vero [I don’t think so]
— Giulio Castoro
Giulio Castoro has been collecting shopping lists for about ten years, transforming them into real unintentional self-portraits.
Romantic, funny, even touching, and always telling, the shopping lists that Castoro has collected around Italy with the energy of an archeologist and the look of a sociologist are a colorful catalog of what a supermarket’s dazzling lights reveal about our inner selves.
