Ritratti abusivi

Illegal Portraits
by Romano Montesarchio 2013 70'

Thirty run-down apartment houses built in the 1960s squatted by 60 families. Welcome to Parco Saraceno, a derelict neighborhood on the outskirts of Castel Volturno in the province of Caserta. A hotbed of crime and misery, like many other peripheral urban areas in Italy where taxes, water and electricity go unpaid and everyday violence plagues the local residents. But this is all soon to end when the eyesore will be demolished to make way for a tourist marina, a redevelopment project to transform the area.
