I called this documentary project “11”, as the number of women I photographed all around Sicily, Italy.

They come from all over the world and all of them left their homeland for the big deal. It took me more than 1 year to collect these stories, and all of them touched my heart.

Women are brave, tenacious and passionate about whatever they decide to do!
