“Ours, if we really need a definition, is a community against social marginalisation”
Vincenzo Muccioli, the founder.
San Patrignano is an Italian long-term drug recovery residential community, considered among the largest and most successful worldwide.
26000 people hosted since 1978. 35 activity sectors and three educational pathways. 4000 years of prison converted in rehabilitation programs in 25 years.
This is an ongoing project, started in 2021, on the personal, didactic and rehabilitative journey of the residents. I focused on the kennels of the community, where residents learn to take care of dogs. Where the line between saviours and saved is really thin.
