Living in Rome, Parisi is surrounded by classical paintings and frescos; he is fascinated by the classical monuments and ancient ruins that remain, imagining how they were hundreds of years ago. Parisi’s photographic project, Il mondo che non vedo (The world I do not see), started from this concept, focusing his attention on modern ruins: theatres, churches, factories and other places that remain abandoned from our recent past and present. Il mondo... focuses on the mysterious beauty of these abandoned locations, which the Parisi sees as still having a soul, almost living independently from human memory and experience.
Parisi participated in the 54th Venice Biennale, Italian Pavilion and in Fotografia Festival Internazionale di Roma in 2012 at the Macro Museum. In 2012 Parisi participated in the Arte Laguna Prize, Venice where he was awarded a special prize, and in 2012 and 2014, he was shortlisted for the Young Masters Art Prize. He has had several solo shows , at the UBS bank in Lugano in 2014, at Glauco Cavaciuti gallery in Milan in 2013 and 2011, at the FotoLeggendo photography festival in Rome in 2011, at the Museo di Roma in Trastevere in 2010 and at the Fabbrica Borroni in Milan in 2009.
