Terra Nostra
Project info

Terra Nostra is a personal project on my homeland Sicily and the signs of the destructive presence of Cosa Nostra in the island.
I looked at the architecture, people, routine and landscapes, photographing the problematic entanglement with the mob, focussing on the legacy of Mafia’s imprint in Sicily.
Terra Nostra is ultimately a labour of love towards a motherland I overwhelmingly feel attached to and with which I strongly, still identify myself. Tormented by a traumatic past and challenged by a difficult present my hopes are for Sicily’s bright side to become stronger and reclaim ownership of its land and protect its people, while keeping on distinguishing itself for its leading role in pursuing justice and equality.
