A series of images born while the exodus from Syria to Europe swelled like a river in full, evoking the need to give shelter to this fugitive humanity.
A series of images born while the exodus from Syria to Europe swelled like a river in full, and televisions and newspapers talked about thousands of people marching through the borders between the various states. Men, women and children who until recently lived their homes, their villages and towns, places of millenarian traditions and memories, suddenly deprived of land, space, hospitality. A whole humanity looking for shelter in every where, advancing and stopping repeatedly at every boundary to cross.
Each image of this series evokes the sense of impotence of architecture over this catastrophe, and at the same time the need to give shelter to this fugitive humanity going beyond what is necessary, imagining useless but fundamental public spaces, places for gathering and remember this drama through the most narrative architecture: the monument, mementum of the many stories that are crossing Europe.
