The paper examines two paintings focusing on the issues of immigration and the closure of ports created by the Palermo artist Massimiliano Scuderi: Esodi (2018) and Origami (2018). The essay highlights the power of artistic language to be transversal in time and space, to be witness to historical facts, to be historical in itself as it intervenes in the political struggle to move consciences. Like Picasso's Guernica, Scuderi's paintings remind us that the wicked political maneuvers related to the migratory phenomenon have exactly the same weight as bombs would have if they were thrown into the sea on a boat loaded with human lives.
