In Cuba, the struggle between roosters is a great social event, like boxing. A few years ago the fights are back to being legal by popular acclaim, and under strict rules. The relationship between men and roosters is incredible. Before the match seems something like fraternal... even up during the armor of their legs... then... the clans, the families, the social classes are faced. The pets are transformed. The eyes changed... The tension raise up.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
