LEGOLAND”, a project carried out by Italian photographer Domenico Franco who has digitally added LEGO cars, vans and even helicopters to the cobbled streets of Rome.

“In this personal project I integrated inside Rome some shocking elements, original vehicles. The aim is to transform ordinary contexts in extraordinary ones, thus compelling the toys to get out of the idyllic and politically correct landscapes belonging to their perfect and idealistic cities , with the result of instilling in them those vices, virtues and desires typical of human beings”.

How many among us would not wish to land by helicopter just beside the Colosseum? I preferably used some sets in minifig scale, therefore made with few bricks so that the integration would look even more piercing”. He said in her behance

“In questo progetto personale ho voluto calare all’interno di Roma degli elementi dirompenti costituiti da veicoli originali LEGO, trasformando dei contesti ordinari in straordinari, forzando quindi i giocattoli ad uscire dai paesaggi idillici e politicamente corretti di utopistiche e perfette città (es. LEGOLAND) e instillando in essi vizi, virtù, velleità degli esseri umani. Quanti di noi desidererebbero atterrare con un elicottero davanti al Colosseo”? via : behance
