Honorable mention at the MIFA Moscow International Foto Awards 2015

'Letters from CIE' has been awarded with a honorable mention at the MIFA Moscow International Foto Awards 2015.

Letters from CIE is part of a bigger visual project about the Identification and Expulsion Centers (CIEs) in Italy. Italy, and other European countries, are at the center of serious violations of human rights with the detention and forced deportation of thousands of migrants.These are not regular prisons and detainees are not regular prisoners. Although foreign nationals are detained within CIEs under the status of “guests,” their stay in these poorly built structures corresponds to a de facto detention, as they are deprived of their freedom and subjected to a regime of abuse and coercion.
