Portraits From Sicily’s Red Light District

In a series titled Taliami e te fazzu petra (One gaze and you’ll turn to stone), photographer Salvatore Di Gregorio documents the diversity in one of Sicily’s most complicated neighborhoods, San Berillo. Home to the city’s red light district, the area’s characters are glammed and glittered, and unabashed about San Berillo’s history.
