Hidden Islam – Islamic makeshift places in North-East Italy, 2014
Despite being the second religious confession in Italy, with an estimate of 1.5 million adepts, Islam is still formally not recognised by the state. This fact coupled with the political exploitation by populist and far-right parties, brings the Islamic community to officially own only a dozen mosques, none of which located in the North-East of Italy.
Hidden Islam works as cadastral catalogue of typologies of approximately 100 buildings used by local Islamic communities, like warehouses, basements, shops and garages, along with case studies that document specific communities and their history.
