Giovanni Troilo: La Ville Noire

About This Project

 

Charleroi, La Ville Noire (The Black City), is a town near Bruxelles that might alone represent the whole of Europe. The collapse of industrial production, rising unemployment, increasing immigration and outbreaks of micro-criminality. The regression of social welfare, the lack of a shared identity. This feature is a journey to the very roots of my family, which moved from Italy to Charleroi in 1956 to work in the steel industry.
