Corviale is a building, stretching over a kilometer in length, is considered the longest building in Europe and about ten thousand people live there. For a long time it was considered the most dangerous district in Rome.
Over the years there have been incredible urban legends regarding Corviale that have further negatively influenced the opinion of people.
To be with and meet the people at Corviale was a fascinating journey first conditioned by my own prejudices but soon these were replaced by a different point of view. My concept evolved into telling about the people of Corviale, not through their anger but through the melancholy and humanity generated by the hard conditions of their lives.
