Alessandro Imbriaco – Fabbrica Fiorucci
Fiorucci was a big factory in the outskirts of Rome. Now it’s squatted by 90 people who built little brick houses inside the building itself. They are all coming from a little village in Romania, 150 km from Bucharest. The community survives collecting iron and copper from the garbage. With the little money collected through this activity they support two families: the one that lives in these cabins of sheet metal and brick built in the former factory, and the one from home in Romania, usually teenagers who are studying and living with grandparents or older people and vulnerable family unable to keep up the hard life they do in Italy.
