I spent over six months in Cairo, living in the City of the Dead. I was collaborating with Liveinslums NGO on a micro-gardening project together with Milan Polytechnic, Cairo University and The Municipality of Milan. During this time I was following around 15 families, every day.  This project attempts to show how families manage to live in an extraordinary place that is a cemetery, transforming it into a normal city full of life.
