Brigantessa is an Italian restaurant in South Philadelphia, featuring traditional Southern Italian cuisine and true brick-oven Pizza Napoletana.

I was commissioned to photograph throughout the regions of Puglia, Basilicata and the city of Napoli, in Southern Italy, to make the artwork that hangs on Restaurant’s walls.

“A Brigantessa was a female brigante, or brigand, one of the many southerners who resisted unification under northern rule in the 1860s and fought a long guerilla war”.
