The project was born from the strong bond that photographer Fabiana Scattareggia, a recent graduate from the Rufa - Rome University of Fine Arts - has with her homeland, Calabria, and the desire for rebellion that drove her away from it.
"'Calabria is ruggedly beautiful, it is a bitter land, contaminated by savages. Today, Calabria is a land that is defined by many as welcoming, but which often becomes the scene of inconceivable violence. A country tormented by crime and abandoned by the State. It has many holes that have never been covered, which is why I felt the need to live it, to tell its story, losing myself in the looks of the people, in the boundless nature. My gaze was "far away" in everything I photographed, starting from nature and arriving at more difficult subjects such as the 'Ndrangheta. My aim is to make anyone who looks at the project reflect on the conditions in Calabria."
