Books: Maktoub. Islam d'Italia (Cibele Edizioni)

The photographic research about Islam in Italy, conducted in 2016 by Elena Perlino, was realized with the support of Open Society Foundation and lettera27. Images, interviews and critical essays investigate the everyday life of Muslims in public or private, the relation between first and second generations, the work life, the woman’s role and the Islamic traditions. Through photography, combined with sociology and journalism, the book Maktoub: Islam in Italy (Cibele publishing house) aims to increase the awareness level on the theme and offer new, more in-depth perspective. Critical contributions are by Bartolomeo Conti, Zouhir Louassini, Francesca Paci, Viviana Premazzi and Farian Sabahi.
