Our territory. An essay of contrast and precariousness

When the filmmaker Mathieu Volpe got to Rignano, the Ghetto residents told me: "You mustn't keep any trace of our lives here in these precarious houses. This despair is not yours to display." 

The misery in the Ghetto is the first thing that struck Volpe, the first thing he wanted to show.
