A small red-brick building stands out with a big neon light: bagni (bath). This is the last public bath in the city where everybody can take a shower. It's a microcosm of people's stories told during one of the most intimate moment of their routine: the personal hygiene. It’s a meeting place for people coming from very different social environment who, however, have the same needs. It’s a conflict place, where poverty takes the features of violence and anger, because of shame and racism. It’s an integration place because, where poverty dwells, sharing, altruism are values for a rebirth.
