Sale Nero - Franco Toso

The eastern region of Ethiopia, the Afar, is an area of surreal, almost lunar, and is among the hottest places in the world with an annual average of 34.4° C. It is located a few kilometers from the border with Eritrea, in an area of volcanoes, geysers and hot springs characterized by yellow-orange colors and gigantic salt deposits. In this inhospitable environment lives the Afar people, nomadic shepherds who, right from salt extraction, are a precious resource for their subsistence.
