francesco zizola's work 'depth of silence' published in internazionale


On 3 October 2013, a Libyan fishing vessel carrying over 500 migrants sunk in sight of the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa. The tragic accident caused the death of 366 migrants, mostly coming from war-torn Eritrea and other troubled African countries. 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.


The story was published by Internazionale, where you can also view Francesco's video footage from the site.
