Our cause

This collective artwork was conceived with a double purpose: recalling the historically open, cosmopolitan spirit of the Mediterranean and drawing attention to the appalling number of people who died while attempting Mediterranean crossings: more then 5,000 in 2016 – year when the project was first carried out. Over 20,000 people lost their lives since 2014 (Source: IOM)
