border-worker [ ˈbôrd|ər ˈwər|kər] noun.
Inhabitant of the borderlands between two countries; a worker who, resident in one area, must cross the border daily to reach their place of work.
Diary of an Italian Border-worker is a story that wends through the streets as traversed by a border-worker. A passage that describes the relationship between territory and working reality, beyond a merely occupational context. It’s a journey that imparts the sensations of a foreign, adjacent landscape. A micro-reality told in point-form, in nuances, where every shot is taken in close proximity to the asphalt.
