Event Details

A lyrical and denouncing comic that deals with the human drama of the refugees who die in the Mediterranean. A charitable project.

“As if they had never been” is a long illustrated poem about the tragedy of those who die at sea trying to reach Europe. Today we know that in the last two decades more than 35,000 people have perished in the Mediterranean. A few months ago, a list of the disappeared was even published, many of whom do not even know their names. Earlier, in 2015, a shocking press headline appeared which was the origin of this album: “900 people could have died yesterday in the Mediterranean”. Not even his death was certain.

For all of them, for what they were and what they will be, the authors sing this shocking prayer: for the corpses of children, women and men that the waters drag to the shore, for the ghosts that nobody saw leave, for the dead that are lost forever in the depths of our sea.
