Bathus

  • Photographer
    Andrea Vagnoni

The Bathus project describes the life of fishermen from San Benedetto del Tronto (AP-Italy), documenting how to this day, fishing remains a difficult and dangerous task, and is also threatened by factors ranging from climate change to sea pollution, from overfishing to aquaculture. The San Benedetto del Tronto Navy is amongst the most important in Italy, first at a national level to build wooden ocean boats and then to install their first engine; only until there will be people in love with this borderline life between Earth and water, the territory will know how to protect its own identity.

"Imbarcarsi nel viaggio e non rendersene conto, fino ad un evento, un incontro… Si squarcia la visione sul presente; il petto mostra la purezza del cuore, la mente prende consapevolezza. Non c’è più dubbio!"
