Where the river flows
Project info

Sacco Valley is an area located in Italy. It’s territory is polluted by several factories that were built during the last century. The government prohibited livestock to be bred or to graze in the whole area. The pollution also caused several physical illnesses to the population who resides there.

My project is an investigation about the environmental situation of Sacco Valley. Following the river, I explored the whole area to find traces of this tragedy, traces that lie below the surface and that are hidden beyond the beauty of these places, and I talked with people who everyday live with it. In my project there are different kinds of photographs, in order to document this complex issue and make it understood and to analyse it from every possible point of view.
