Mamoiada, the last pagan dance
In the heart of Sardinia a rite which not even the Romans were able to abolish

Sa Perda Pinta', which is the Sardinian for "the engraved stone", is a rock decorated with mysterious designs more than 5000 years ago. In 1997 it was rediscovered by chance by Maria Giovanna, and it remains in her garden in Mamoiada. “Perhaps they are symbols inspired by the mother goddess," she ex

Venezuela
Caracas - Hunger crimes
Hunting for food

Once the "Saudi Arabia" of South America, today Venezuela is more similar to Syria. A country that has been economically destroyed and is socially unstable fighting an ever more alarming spectre: hunger.

Silicon Valley Tour
Why are Facebook, Google and Apple the new secular shrines?

It must be Google's familiarity (3,5 billion hits every day), Facebook's success (more than 2,2 billion active users) or Apple's penetration of the entire world (more than one billion iPhones sold since 2007).

Rape and violence in the Platinum Mining Belt

Sicarios
A job like any other

Taxi driver, barber, or funeral director by day. Sicario (hitman) by night. In Honduras, life's easier with a second job, above all when a single payment can be up to 10,000 dollars. Naturally, it's not every day you get to remove a politician who's become a pain in the neck to the drug cartels or g

The great thirst
Water scarcity and the Emilia Romagna model

The Bosnian Game
A risky way to Europe

A goal to reach, potentially deadly challenges to overcome and just a single resource - a mobile phone. It may sound like the plot for a horror film, but "the game" is now a harsh reality. For young Iranian victims of Sharia law, Kurdish families whose parents have been imprisoned for their politica

Transhumance
An archaic and rural ritual that keeps generations together

The transumanza tells the story of the intimate relationship between human beings and the land to which they belong.
A seasonal migration of flocks, herds, and shepherds, it begins up in the mountains right before summer and then moves onto the plains as the first frosts are on their way.

Dhaka's invisible slaves
A roof in exchange for a life

Driven by the impossibility of taking care of their own children, Bangladesh's poorest families are the first link in an invisible chain of slavery that ties children to unscrupulous masters and denies them their fundamental rights. In exchange for board and lodging, they leave the shanty towns and
