Sciabica a project launched in the aftermath of the sinking on October 3rd 2013, when 368 people died in the Sicilian Channel.
Sciabica is a word of Arabic origin that means ‘fishing net’. For Fabrica, Sciabica is the net that has been cast to collect, after all the clamour of the media, the tales of those that are left. The rhythm of these stories is slow and cannot keep up with the fast pace of the news. This is the rhythm of those who continue to live here, now that the spotlights have been turned off, and are trying to put a bit of order back into things: the sea, in the street, in their souls.
