    Marialuisa Cortesi

A new state in the middle of the sea is born and changes every day; a fleeting island made up of boats and rubber dinghies, a babel of languages and suffering appears and disappears in the middle of the Mediterranean waves, breaks and melts in its waters. Rescue island daily surfaces since 2011. It is necessary a sea road that joins us to it.
