“Cortile Napoli” is a tribute to the lives of children, facing a very difficult context in a district of Palermo named Zisa-Danisinni, inhabited by a high number of vulnerable families, mainly foreigners and unemployed. Paola, mother of Alma, Clara and Angela, showed me where she lives with her family, in a very small alley of Zisa called Cortile Napoli. Despite being a very tiny space to live in, it immediately felt like home to me. I stayed in Cortile Napoli as much as I could, trying to grasp the grace of the children’s plays and thoughts, being part of them, sweeping away any boundary.
