This is a story about me, my friends and my family, based on migration caused by a lack of work in our home countries.


My name is Marco Larocca. I was born in Italy in 1987 and I studied chemistry at the University of Calabria (unical). I now live in France because I could not find a job when I finished university. I have always loved art and the world of comics.

3. After a lot of sacrifice, I found it! / Yes, I did it! / My life can begin!

4. At the end I learned an important thing… / …national or regional borders are completely useless. / Now I don’t feel alone anymore because the entire world is MY HOME!
