The threads of Rachele’s most precious map were wevead by the hands of Ms Souad, a woman who also crossed the Mediterranean. In this oeuvre we clearly see the intervention of the artist as Melilli concludes:

“And the cotton thread and Souad’s hands have the job of reuniting and retracing the broken threads of history, seeking to reconcile times, spaces and stories, both in ideal terms and in their intentions. Meanwhile, I shoulder all the responsibility for this action I have created, instigated and chosen” (Melilli and Rossetto 2021).
