“Our Mother” is the story of a journey in search of stories of redemption.
Lorenzo Scaraggi, journalist, traveler, crossed Apulia, a Southern Italy district, on a campervan from 1982, describing the meeting with men and places that, thanks to social farming, sought and found the second possibility that life often does not offer to many .
From the lands confiscated from the mafia, to the communities of former drug addicts to the redemption by the criminal association, “Madre Nostra” step by step, meeting after meeting, face after face, becomes a boundless prayer, a way to recognize that if Our Father it is in heaven, Mother Nostra is on earth, it is the earth that redeems people and places from one’s past.

In 2012 he bought a 1982 camper van, renamed Vostok100k, in honor of the first mission of man in space, with the intention of turning it into a sort of bandwagon of stories, a mobile editorial office.
