On 3 October 2013, a Libyan fishing vessel carrying over 500 migrants sunk in sight of the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa, resulting in the death of 366 migrants.


A year later Francesco Zizola photographed and filmed the wreck of the boat, which lies on the seabed 50 meters under water, its prow facing Lampedusa’s port. These pictures were made in memory of the victims.
