Fortress Europe

IN 2011, WHEN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAVE OF PROTESTS AND CIVIL WARS KNOWN AS THE ARAB SPRING SPREAD THROUGHOUT NORTHERN AFRICA, I DOCUMENTED THE MASSIVE LANDINGS OF TUNISIAN MIGRANTS TO THE ITALIAN SHORES; I THEN DECIDED TO FOCUS ON THE MIGRATORY ROUTES TOWARDS AND INSIDE EUROPE. THIS ONGOING LONG-TERM PROJECT TOOK ME TO ELEVEN COUNTRIES, FROM MOROCCO TO UNITED KINGDOM, FROM FRANCE TO THE BALKANS, WHERE I HIT THE SAME ROAD THAT - ONLY IN 2015 - WAS TRAVELLED BY MORE THAN ONE MILLION PEOPLE, LOOKING FOR ASYLUM IN NORTHERN EUROPE.
