Migrant tomatoes. Tons of tomatoes are grown in Southern Italy and harvested by about 19000 laborers, many are immigrants, paid 1 or 2 euro for each filled box. Only in 2015 there were 13 deaths at work in the fields because of high temperatures. I imagined their stories, the hours spent in the sun, the hope, the desire to work. Since then, I haven't watched the tomatoe sauce with the same eyes.
