Saints and secret societies of Siberia


With its eleven million square kilometers Siberia it is one of the largest territories and remote in the world. For generations, the Russians have used it as a gathering place for all kinds of religious exiles and prisoners. The first thing you have to think about the idea of Siberia is a vast and desolate place where there were very few people. The Russians have always seen it as an empty space that you found them to be filled, but unfortunately we never succeeded because it was too big!

Le estati che non arrivarono mai


Agli inizi del primo secolo dell’età contemporanea (1800-1816), la terra era caratterizzata da una grande instabilità politica.

In Europa dopo anni di disperazione e distruzione la gente si aspettava tempi migliori, ma l’estate che arrivò fu piovosa e fredda, i raccolti non diedero frutti, la fame e le malattie furono le conseguenze.
