MIGRANTS ROOM

Manuela Schirra and Fabrizio Giraldi

2018 - Ongoing

Dormitories, kitchens, canteens, mosques, classrooms, laundries, bathrooms, living rooms and warehouses.

Spaces for sleeping, cooking, eating, praying, learning, washing, staying and keeping.

The images document the places of the hospitality. They are temporary, shared and silent places, they explain themselves their need to exist.

The project was realized in the city of Gorizia, the “Lampedusa” of North-East. Gorizia is the main gateway to Italy on the Balkan route.
