The first days of october 1944, End of WWII.
Marzabotto, a small town near Bologna.
In reprisal for helping the partisans, more than 770 peoples were massacred in cold blood by the Nazis.
240 of the victims were kids from 1 to 16 years old. 316 were woman.
Everybody in town was killed, the buildings were destroyed.
Verbrannte Erde, Scorched Land.
After more than 50 years, Marzabotto’s land and men are still recovering from the wounds.

Verrbrante Erde is Salvatore Santoro’s investigation of the town and its outskirts,
He wanders through a vacant landscape and town streets, scavenging fragments of evidence and scraps of memory, outlining a visual research into the fabric of a wounded town.

In the words of Massimo Zamboni, Italian musician:
“Salvatore’s lens glimpsed it: Marzabotto teach us the embarrassment of looking each other as of today.”
