Al-Zahara

The "Association of muslim Women of Palermo", which relies on the main mosque of the city, works as a real network to support the islamic women who live in Palermo, encounter difficulties. 

These women, mainly from Morocco and Tunisia, work to support other Muslim women who live in the city, trying to create a system of integration and solidarity.

The association focuses above all on the fight against all forms of discrimination and violence against islamic women, against Islamophobia, against family and domestic violence. 

The women of the association want to carry on the idea that islamic women has her own strong identity and also tries to spread a message of respect regardless of their religion or culture.

They work every day to carry on a message of peace.

We are creating a series of portraits and symbolic scenes. 

Starting from these portrait, I will continue to explore the muslim world of islamic women in Palermo, from differente perspectives.
