Gallery Art & Advice, Stevoort (B) commissioned several artists with the theme of the guest-labourers that came from many countries to work in the Belgian Mines.

The artwork shows the suitcase of an Italian worker who has packed little figures of the inhabitants of his Italian home and village, in a sentimental attempt to transport his beloved homeworld to his new living and working condition.
