This work was awarded the 1° Prize of the International Photography Award "Travel to Basilicata, the Perception of the other", organized by the Region Basilicata in 2008.
It shows a series of students who participates to the exchange program of the Onlus Association Intercultura. intercultura.it
In each frame there is an Italian student together with his/her foreign host. The foreigner students spend 6 months or more in various Italian cities, they're hosted by Italian families with peer children and attend school.
Sometimes they get along well together, sometimes they don't. It' quite difficult both for the foreign teenager and for he hosting parents to deal all difficulties arising by a co-living in the same house.
This work was possible thanks to the collaboration of the Onlus Association Intercultura, to all the hosting families, to the students who accepted to participate and offered their time and availability, and to the family who welcomed and hosted me during the making of the projects.
