Pampuri is a reception centre for asylum seekers and refugees in downtown Brescia.
I spent a few weeks there with the purpose of documentation.
At the beginning I focused on the  guys from all over  the world who live and study in Pampuri. After a while, I thought the subject  I would like to focus on was Maria, 25 years old, an Italian teacher who works in the centre.

Chapter I - The desert is a woman

She showed me her diary, notes on scattered pieces of paper in which she wrote her reflections that arise
from the italian classes to her students waiting for asylum. In those notes  come to light the space between.
Between women and men, between Europe and Africa, between different cultures.
