This project is the result of a collection of testimonies begun in 2019 that were taken directly from the people who animate Italy’s incredibly unique five lands, the Cinque Terre.
Inspired by Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York, the interviews we collected are matched with unique artistic photo portraits, and contribute to save the oral traditions of this amazing part of the world.
In this website you’ll be able to read 25 stories: the remaining 25 will be available in the book on sale on Kickstarter.
Humans of Cinque Terre fosters the vision of a slow-tourism, by depicting the daily life of people in Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso.
Discover all the Humans that live in the place where the next Pixar’s movie Luca is set by buying the hand-curated artistic book on Kickstarter!
