“Hotel Purgatorio”

Location: ITALIA

Trying to analyze the problem of housing emergency, especially about occupations, this project wants to explore the contradiction between families’ isolation, including their aim to reorganize and protect their life occupying a property, and social support they try to find by replaying the situation of psychological and social distress: refugees, asylum seekers, homeless people, irregular immigrants remain outside the economic circuit and therefore obtain a non extensive protection, also in terms of housing. In this long-term project, my aim is to describe the way people face inequality, how they structure communitarian responses to it, what they feel in depth and their psychological conditions because of a temporary life.
