On the Chinese Two-monthly Vision an interview of mine to testify of what I have experienced in all the years I have photographed in Scampia. What I feel and what I feel towards this neighborhood to which I gave but I have also received so much, but above all I talk about the humanity of this place that politics wants to remain hopeless and how I see the future for these people I’ve had honor to meet.
Journey into the epicenter of Italian poverty. Where every day you fight against ugliness. And a thousand ideas flourish to make it happen.
