On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the birth of Emergency, Contrasto curated the production and realization of the photographic exhibition “Zakhem | Ferite” by Giulio Piscitelli and a projection-event at Colonne di San Lorenzo in Milan.

In 2018, Giulio Piscitelli visited Emergency’s Surgical Centres for War Victims in Kabul and Lashkar-Gah, Afghanistan. He met war victims and gave them names and faces and discovered their stories that reveal the wounds – zakhem in Dari – left by the conflict.
