Presentation of the photo exhibition consisting of over 80 shots taken by RAI special correspondent and photo-reporter Giammarco Sicuro.
A collection that the author wanted to donate to UNICEF and collected in more than 10 years of work in various countries around the world, composed entirely of children's faces and stories. A colourful and heterogeneous mosaic, but also and above all a suffering, emergent and painful mosaic of a childhood lost in corners of the world too often abandoned and forgotten.
Myanmar, Peru, Bolivia, India, Nepal, Brazil, Oman, Tajikistan, are just some of the countries visited, with a main focus on two major emergencies: Afghanistan and, of course, Ukraine. The former, a country that has suffered the Taliban's return to power and faces a gigantic humanitarian crisis. Malnutrition, diseases that had already been eradicated and are now present again, absolute denial of rights to children, girls and women, extreme poverty that Giammarco Sicuro has been able to document also thanks to the precious help of UNICEF, visiting schools and hospitals in remote and otherwise inaccessible locations.
And then, the war in Ukraine on its first anniversary, whose tragedy emerges with overwhelming and shocking force from the author's shots, taken close to the front in the midst of the conflict.
