Shuto Orizari, or Shutka in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, is among the biggest Roma settlements in Europe. The official language is Roma. The village, founded after the earthquake that destroyed the city in 1963, conforms one of the ten municipalities that make up Skopje. In Shutka you’ll face two sides of the same reality by just changing the street. While in some streets you’ll find houses that look like modern palaces made of marble, with columns and pretty well decorated, others just held barracks build up with scraps of plastic and metal. The first ones belong to those families who had the opportunity to emigrate to western countries while the others are from the poorest people living in Shutka and working on collecting scrap metal.
