safe-keeping (custodia): context
Safe-keeping (Custodia) 2014, examines the affective potential of wrapped and unopened bundles of clothes and personal belongings taken from patients on entering the former psychiatric hospital - Santa Maria Della Pietà, in Rome.

These ‘fagotti’ were never reclaimed when the hospital closed in 1999, and they are now on display in the Museo Laboratorio Della Mente on the site of the former hospital. The Museo was established to promote a positive and empathic understanding of mental illness to audiences through innovative, interactive audio-visual installations designed by Studio Azzurro.
