Lombroso's Roma camp located in Rome it has existed for more than 30 years. About 200 people from Bosnia live there, most of them minors. Most are part of the same family clan. Almost all have been born in Italy but almost all of them have neither Italian nor Bosnian documents, this prevents them from finding a regular job or being able to rent a house. The Municipality of Rome has decided to dismanttle the Roma camps still present and for this camp there should be an eviction next winter. Nobody knows what will become of the people living here. This project wants to tell these people.

My name’s Roberto Scordino and I’m a professional photographer born and based in Rome. I started to photograph only at the end of 2015 but I have worked for a long time with multimedia projects working with multinational institutions and brands and have been a VJ starting in 1999 back to the times of vhs. For years I have been interested in socio-anthropological research in the world of subcultures. In the last three years I studied photography, among others, with awards-winners photographers like Paolo Marchetti and I am graduated in the Masterclass held by Fausto Podavini and Giovanni Cocco.
