Two happy kids at school. Today, 8th of April, is the Roma international day. The Roma contribution to European and world culture (music, for instance) is disproportionately large and barely known in comparison to their social position (unfortunately well diffused by the media…). Vogosca, Bosnia and Herzegovina, October 2012. © Luca Bonacini.

Big celebration in Sarajevo: national football team goes to Brazil

Almost 10.000 of people joyfully invaded streets and squares of Sarajevo to celebrate, cheerfully and all night long, the Bosnia-Herzegovina qualification to the next football world cup in Brazil. For many Bosnians, the historic success represent a rare cause for celebration in a daily life marked by dramatic unemployment rate (almost 50%) and ethnic divisions.

The ironic notice “Skupljam pare za Brazil” (I collect money to go to Brazil) showed by a group of football fans, reminds us the local economic reality as well as the amazing ability of Bosnian to face hard life with good humour.

Don’t forget Srebrenica


Every year, on July 11th, Srebrenica remembers one of the most horrific massacres in recent history. In 1995, during the Bosnian war, more than 8,000 Bosniaks – most of them, men – were brutally murdered ​​by Bosnian Serb troops. In this small town of Bosnia and Herzegovina, every year hundreds of bodies are buried in a collective funeral attended silently by thousands of people. Most of them are women, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, who survived from the murderous fury, and who gather at the memorial of Potocari to bid farewell to their loved ones. This woman is one of the faces of Srebrenica.
