This book tells a story about Ethiopia by photos and poems.

Ethiopia is seen as the archetype of the relationship between man and land, the promise of life in the city and poverty. This work leaves nothing to aesthetics and unnecessary, and its lyricism is the goal to which it comes through the beaten path. The book is deliberately poor: stitching bound and simply kept in a cardboard box.

This work and its gaunt photography testify a conscious ethical force, a human and stylistic choice that springs from the search for Truth.

"Finchè tornerai terra" means "till thou return unto the ground, to the dust".

Photos, design and handcrafted realisation by Valentino Barachini

Poems and copywriting by Matilde Vittoria Laricchia.
