Fiumicino Airport is the most important hub in Italy but few people know that, in a special area, the Guardia di Finanza (an Italian Law enforcment corp force under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance) keeps all the “strange” stuff passengers try to import…
It was not an easy photo assignement (the quality of shots is not the best) but it helped to publish a reportage on the left out parts of the airport

    WOW, what an interesting assignment! And what a crazy looking place! I think you did great! It's exactly what you were looking to show, it's not YOUR fault that it's a little "strange"!
