The Viapori dockyard boasts almost three centuries of uninterrupted activity. Where warships were once built, ships with historical significance are now restored.
Every winter the dockyard shelters a fleet of traditional wooden sailing ships built in the aftermath of WWII for the coastal trade.
They ensured the supply of building materials for the reconstruction of Helsinki, were meant to work hard and live short.
Thanks to two generations of people who sailed and lovingly preserved them, a few of these ships survive.

"Winter Voyage to Finland" is a journey to the discovery of the community of Finnish maritime pilots, their traditions and environment.
Jacopo Brancati spent three winters staying at different pilot stations, along the coast from the eastern border to the west, then up to the north.
Welcomed by the pilots as a fellow worker, he shared with them during long winter months the life, work and waiting hours at a pilot station and aboard the ships that land or leave Finland.
This experience is narrated like in a fresco by Jäinen matka Suomeen, that the National Maritime museum of Finland commissioned to the Author with the support of Finnpilot, the pilotage state owned company.
From this photographic work, entirely made with film cameras, the Maritime Museum of Finland, Merikeskus Vellamo has chosen sixty fine art prints for its collections.

This black and white series is a silent journey into the impressionists’ Island, close to Paris, France.
The author uses the special light of the river Seine valley to describe a world of shadows. Where men tried several times to settle, nothing is left but the bruised remains of their presence that little by little, inexorably, forgetfulness and nature swallow.

For a year, Jacopo Brancati shared the life of the workers of the port of Genoa, one of the largest in the Mediterranean. His photo-reportage represents a stunning witness of the activities and atmosphere so peculiar to this «town within the town» where by all weather, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, men guide and assist the over 20.000 ships yearly entering the harbour of Genoa

In 2007 the book was awarded the "Sanremo Libro del Mare" prize for the photographic book section
