“In the last years, following the exponential increase in migration flows to Italian coasts, especially Sicilian ones, I had the opportunity to be in close contact with migrant people, people not numbers, during the landings on italian coasts. From the beginning I felt the need to witness what I saw, to document it. Over time my gaze has changed, initially shaken by the tragedy declined in its most bloody forms, it has found interest in what happened next, in what the media doesn't care because it doesn't make news. So I discovered a form of serenity in the tragedy, a peace born of the awareness that nothing worse than what was past could now happen, an extraordinary humanity in living with the drama and with the hope to start a new life. My photos don't want to focus on the problem or report those responsible; but rather to be an invitation to think, to consider the human side of these men, women, children, families. They cry, sing, laugh, bleed like us, but unlike us often don't have the opportunity to choose. Life is an identical gift for everyone and everyone should have the right to choose how to make sense of it."
