Some of You Killed Luisa is Valeria Cherchi’s attempt to decode the complex structure of the phenomenon of widespread kidnappings that occurred in her homeland, the island of Sardinia, between the 1960s and 1990s. During that time, almost 200 people were kidnapped and held for ransom. But how does one tell a story bound by uncertainty? How do we talk about histories that are only partially concluded? Cherchi is one of the few artists to deal with this dark chapter of Sardinian history by defining the parts of the story that are reliable. This book is the outcome of several years of field research, interaction with local communities, and looking through archives and family photo albums.
