International Workers' Day<br />
Rome, 01/05/2018. This year I will not go to a MayDay Parade, I will not photograph Red flags, trade unionists, activists, thousands of members of the public marching, celebrating, chanting, fighting, marking the May Day: the International Worker's Day. This year, I decided to show an Occupation which I have documented and 'living' for the last months. It is completely dedicated to Work, to Share, to collettively show and give Support & Solidarity to each other, to be part of a community which works mainly for the public and in the public interest. This "Workers' Occupation" is called Officine Zero, OZ. It is in Rome, and it is struggling and fighting to survive and to show that Labour/Work – and manual Labour/Work - is still fundamental and needed to enrich us, our and other people lives. This Story is dedicated to all the people who work, and to all the People who are struggling to find a job, who is underpaied, who is exploited, and who is in slave conditions, another way is really possible, and it is not the usual meaningless slogan!
