Leather softcover, text by Arianne Rinaldo, design by Koehorst in ‘t Veld, signed edition of 250.

"In this story, the Casa Famiglia is a place of limbo and transition. Not knowing their fate, the young people who live there only have their imagination to draw a picture of their future. This state of mind is beautifully visualised in Deprit's photographs of daily life. His particular angles and lighting turn these ordinary moments into sometimes surreal and cinematographic images". (Ineke Smits)

"This work seeks to explore the special psychological moment of adolescence traversed by foreign minors in juvenile communities and the impact of their individual experience in the passage to adulthood. For them, it is a time suspended between past and future which sees radical changes in their space; a passing phase in which tensions, reflections and life expectations are concentrated.

In Italy, each year the 'Case Famiglie' (literally 'Family Homes' – family-type communities located in residential buildings), welcome between 7,000 and 8,000 unaccompanied non-EU citizen minors from different continents – young people who have travelled thousands of kilometres, even at the risk of their lives, fleeing war, poverty and uncertainty.

They can be defined as survivors, having faced, in some cases, a voyage which in its final phase brought them to the extreme limits of their means. Now in the 'Home', they live suspended between two worlds, in time and in space; they are on hold, waiting for what will come. However, during this welcoming phase in which they have found a dimension of tranquillity, the sense of uncertainty does not come any less, as once they reach adulthood, they will again find themselves facing the external world outside the home, often without any sort of purpose."
