RESCUE ISLAND A new state in the middle of the sea is born and changes every day; a fleeting island made up of boats and rubber dinghies, a babel of languages and suffering appears and disappears in the middle of the Mediterranean waves, breaks and melts in its waters. Rescue island daily surfaces since 2011. It is necessary a sea road that joins us to it.

Marialuisa Cortesi was born in Italy in 1977. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna where she encountered Photography. She has worked in fashion as a visual merchandiser developing at the same time photographic research. Currently she is working as teacher and photoreporter.
