Riace, utopia in suspending

In 1998 the Riace major Dominico Lucano decides to give a chance to the migrants arriving by the sea. This major wants to fight against the rural exodus by helping the new immigrants to find jobs in craft industry and also appartments. The Sicilian photographer Giovanni Pulice goes there and observe this utopia where Riace inhabitants live with Afghans, Africans and Arabes. The others villages around Riace follow this exemple but the winning of the far right lead by Matteo Salvini at the last Italian  elections look like a bad new. Salvini orders to transfer the non Italian people in centers but he must stop quickly because the mobilization against that decision takes a high level. Salvini decides after to put the major Lucano under house arrest and stop giving money to the associations who take care of the migrants trying to end this utopia.
