Next Stop Eurodisney

Mattia Buffoli’s photographic project, devoted to Val d’Europe, tells the sensation of being in a ghost town sprung up in the middle of nowhere, a city where nobody really lives.

Next Stop Eurodisney
Val dʼEurope, located around 35 km to the east of Paris, was built in conjunction with The Walt Disney Company, who wished to create a town near the Disney resort to host its employers.
The architectural style of Val dʼEurope takes inspiration from the “neo-traditional” style of the Baron Haussmann, who supervised the construction of Paris in the 19th century.
The only people to be found in Val dʼEurope are in the station or shopping centre/outlet. Anywhere else the place feels like a ghost town sprung up in the middle of nowhere.The only sounds are the birds or the odd distant car. This town is home to the people who work at the shopping centre or EuroDisney, but the overwhelming sensation is that nobody really lives here.


Mattia Buffoli, born in 1983, defines himself not a photographer but as an explorer. He has been taking photos for many years and mainly does so using analog. As a lover of cinema and frozen stills of day-to-day life by great the masters such as Doisneau, Frank and Erwitt, film has a special meaning for him. He has been selected in two talent competitions organised by Vogue and works with clients such as Prada and Ikea.
