Switzerland is well-known as one of the safest countries on earth and as a prime example of efficiency and efficacy. One of the central reasons that such a country exists is the development of a culture based on protection, which is supported by the presence and production of national security. When in 2014 Swiss people voted in favor of a federal popular initiative ?against massive immigration,? Salvatore Vitale, an immigrant living in Switzerland, felt the need to research this phenomenon in order to comprehend where the motives for this constant need for security originate and how they became part of Swiss culture. 00Exhibition: Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur, Switzerland (23.02.-26.05.2019).
