Greetings from the Mediterranean
By Lorenzo Bernini
I chose a a series of postcard as a metaphor to convey the number of migrants who died while crossing the Mediterranean from Africa to Italy. The postcards are organized by the incident to which they refer. They feature photos of the open sea on the front, along with text containing the coordinates of the incident site, which can be viewed on Google Maps by scanning the QR code on the back. The design of the postcards (colors, font choices, layout) is inspired by the stereotypical look and aesthetic of Italian seaside postcards.
