Hassane (25, Senegal) e Mikel (22, Gambia) got to Lucca, Italy around four years ago, driven by the desire to see their dreams come true.

We are a generation that barely knows how to answer directly to the question “Where do you feel at home?”. Our homes have thousands of faces and thousands of names, they are sensations, colors, smells, memories transcending the idea of the four physical walls where we keep our belongings.
