    Engraving on paper

    "Ma vie est entre vos mains, merci de faire attention" (My life is in your hands, please be careful): this is the phrase printed on a wall in the Jungle of Calais, reproduced by Gian Maria Tosatti for the limited edition engraving made in the context of Treccani Alphabet. The materiality of the wall on which the spontaneous community of migrants expressed their cry for help, desperate, but composed, is returned through different passages of color on paper, starting from a photograph by the artist.
