Diary of an Italia Borderworker is a project started on 2014 and completed some months ago.
border-worker [ ˈbôrd|ər ˈwər|kər] noun.
Inhabitant of the borderlands between two countries; a worker who, resident in one area, must cross the border daily to reach their place of work.
Diary of an Italian Border-worker is a story that wends through the streets as traversed by a border-worker. A passage that describes the relationship between territory and working reality, beyond a merely occupational context.
It’s a journey that imparts the sensations of a foreign, adjacent landscape.
A micro-reality told in point-form, in nuances, where every shot is taken in close proximity to the asphalt.
In the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland, there are currently over 60,000 Italian border-workers.
Diary of an Italian Borderworker is a project that takes shape from the meaning of the word borderworker.
A meaning that derives from the occupational context, by going beyond of “being a worker”, towards the person, telling the everyday experience in the role of a foreigner, in a foreign landscape.
