A young Italian named Dario, right, performs at a party in Rome in 2015. Photographer Gianluca Abblasio has been documenting the aspiring rock star's life in a photo series called "I Am Dario."
Abblasio followed Dario and his friends for the photo project.
"It's a story that wants to show something about my city Rome and this area that is a working-class area," Abblasio said. "Something that is not the stereotype of Rome -- something different that is not shown very often by mass media, but that is real."
Abblasio first met Dario in 2011. "I really thought that this young man had something special," Abblasio said.
Dario looks at used albums in 2014. Abblasio said Dario was inspired by David Bowie when he was very young.
