Mediterranean Sea. Tells the story of how some of the great migratory flows that have crossed the Mediterranean since 2012. The white flag, which should be a symbol of consolidated truce, witnesses the failures of a European policy which is unprepared to deal with these flows. What remains is the theme of the sea and those who cross it. It is the ship, always full, the object-oxymoron simultaneously utopian and dystopian, which inevitably places those who leave and those who receive in the same boat.
