The Longest Way Home
Photographer: Antonio Denti
Exhibit Title: The Longest Way Home
Location: Vatican City State (Holy See)
'The Longest Way Home' is a story of deep survival. Under Bernini's colonnade, built exactly while France and England were fighting for the colonial domination of Canada, history came to a moment of reckoning in April 2022. Pope Francis received a delegation of Canadian Indigenous People and apologized to them for the role of the church in the so-called residential schools, where children were separated from their parents, and made forget their culture, language and traditions. But the Indigenous at the Vatican were a proof that if violence can destroy a person it can also lead him to revolt and to find himself. So, the Indigenous under the colonnade - who decided to reconquer their identity and protect it like a flame in the wind - were a stronger, deliberate version of what the residential schools had wanted to erase. Proud in their traditional clothes, under Bernini's colonnade.
