Divided by the Sea

Divided by the Sea



Andrea Patiño Contreras & Gabriela Arp

Rabbit Raccoon Studios


The small city of Reggio Calabria in southern Italy has seen the arrival of thousands of refugees

who make the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean Sea in hopes of finding better

living conditions.


In 2016 over 350,000 refugees crossed the Mediterranean Sea and reached European soil. Of

those,180,000 refugees took the Central Mediterranean route, which connects Libya to Italy

and Malta, and is the deadliest route in the world. Over 4,400 refugees died at sea last year.


Divided by the Sea is a collection of multimedia stories about the Mediterranean refugee crisis

and its impact on the small city of Reggio Calabria in Southern Italy through the eyes of both

refugees and local Italians.
