Sgroi shot many images trying to capture the sense of doubt that exist in countries that are already part of the European Community as well as those countries willing to get in.
In the pictures there are grazed faces and places corroded by memory, but also surrounded by modernity; the pictures show signs of modern euphoria, although they falls into the gloom of a restless past. All the images were shot in areas which have lived a strong identity tension and change.
The countries where the pictures are shot are 14:
Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Herzegovina, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia.
