Diary of an Italian Border-worker is a story by Fabrizio Albertini 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.
