Arkady himself is a fugitive, more than once he has said that he was here, “because I am weak, the strong are able to leave.”

"An industrial skyline looms over Taranto through every possible visual and mental sight. For over 50 years, smoke, dust and pollutants propagated in a town forced to an alleged “industrial vocation”, but actually with deeper, more and more invisible vocations for farming, tourism and the sea. Water and oil, countryside and steel, doric columns and concrete do not coexist in this southern Italian town, as well as the absurd, unacceptable by now, alternative between work and health. Sansavenir is a word painted on a wall dividing the Ilva steel factory and the town surrounding it.These photographs talk about what is surrounding it. "
