In an abandoned house in Calabria (Italy) photographer Petra Stavast found old pictures and letters. She started to search for the people on these pictures and reconstructed the story behind the images. Just like a mystery that slowly unfolds to eventually reveal the truth of the matter, Stavast's project intertwines the reader in a collection of images to reconstruct a absorbing story about Italy, migration, Libero and his family. Coming across an abandoned house in Calabria (Italy) the photographer found a collection of old photographs and letters and started to search for the people in these pictures in order to re-tell the story behind the images. The result of her enterprise is delivered through this collection of found photographs taken by different family members, correspondence and recent images by Stavast herself.
