Barcelona assignment for AFP

During the last two month I've been covering the uprising and the Referendum of the 1 Oct, working for AFP and Il Fatto Quotidiano.

I consider Barcelona like my second house. I've been living in Barcelona for a couple of years in the late 2007 - 2008. During the last decade I've back to Barcelona at least 3 times a year to work with my photo laboratory, to develop projects, masterclass and exhibitions. Some of my closest  friends are living there. In the late September 2017, Barcelona and all Catalunya entered in the mainstream due to the Independence movement and the tension against the Spanish government.
