Letizia Battaglia was interested in everything that surrounded her, but also in everything that aroused her curiosity from afar. Her best-known works are the images that recount with activist passion the bloody years of the Sicilian Mafia wars. Despite this, she felt that the title "Mafia photographer" did not suit her.

With her black-and-white images, she preferred to present herself as a witness to what was happening in her hometown, which she documented regularly, practically to the end. Her favourite subjects were children and young women, as an expression of a possible future.

The exhibition Photography as a Life Choice, curated by Francesca Alfano Miglietti, presents 300 photographs that reveal the social and political context in which they were shot, published, exhibited, experienced, and interpreted. The selection of photos was undertaken together with the Letizia Battaglia archive.
