My project proposal related to the Coronavirus pandemic in Italy has been awarded with the National Geographic Society’s Emergency Fund for Journalists. Since March 2020 I have been documenting the effect of the COVID-19 outbreak on Rome’s community of 8,000 homeless and immigrants forced to live in the streets during the quarantine, exploring the avenues of information and assistance available to this population during the pandemic and examining how Rome’s institutions and society are responding to their needs. “In the most difficult of times, journalism can play several roles in supporting communities around the globe. It can disseminate critical information to keep people safe and informed, it can illuminate stories that bring us hope and remind us of our shared human experience, and it can help us find and share solutions to wicked problems”.
