“For the Deepland project, I traveled on the back of a mule along ancient mountain paths and, retracing age-old Sicilian mule tracks, portrayed the life of communities dedicated to agriculture along with rural landscapes, highlighting the changes brought about by shifting socioeconomic conditions. The journey, following as it does the routes of old mule tracks, is contributing to the rewriting of new cartographies of those routes, the last mapping of which dates back to the 1950s. The Deepland project started in 2016, and is ongoing.” – Roselena Ramistella
