Hope is a permanent installation visible at night. A path marked with phosphorescent paint on the “Path of Hope” or “Pass of Death”, a road historically taken to avoid the border controls between Italy and France. The path ends at a wall of barbed wire at the border between the two nations. Hope was installed in the summer of 2015, in the days when hundreds of migrants settled on the rocky beach of Ventimiglia to protest against the block in the flow of migrants at the French border of Menton. A video documents the installation and the world built by the migrants settled on the rocks, the place where the protesters and Andrea d’Amore met to discuss the installation in progress on the path.
