Following the delicate fable which comprises the first part of the book, we reveal the challenging living conditions of children and teenagers living in the Samos hotspot, made even more explicit and touching through the photographs in the second part of the book. Fruit of Nicoletta Novara’s photography workshops held in Mazi, and accompanied by texts written by the kids themselves, these provide provide an authentic, sincere, raw yet hopeful insight into one of the greatest tragedies of modern Europe.

SE FOSSE TUO FIGLIO, Nicolò Govoni

Discover who you are and who you want to become. Take your dreams seriously. Let your kite fly. Be free, Hammudi. Keep on shining. “My name is Nicolò. What’s your name?” “Hammudi” he says, pointing at himself. “Syria.” He flew from war, he survived the sea, but his smile is huge. Nicolò feels that he would risk anything to keep that smile shining. The Samos hotspot stretches around them, a place which resembles hell, in which refugees live in overcrowded tents, without water or electricity, among mounds of garbage. For Hammudi and the other children in the camp, even the simplest things - like playing with a ball or eating pizza - seem impossible. Nicolò is just a volunteer, but there is one thing he knows: he wants to change the world.
