Immigration Day

Immigration Day

On Tuesday 8 October the Festival hosts Immigration Day that, created in collaboration with Naga, has been critically addressing the issue of immigration.

At the centre of the program, the Italian première of the documentary The Rest (8 pm) by the Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, a journey through the stories of those living in refugee camps in the Mediterranean. The screening is introduced by Arturo Galansino, director of Palazzo Strozzi who hosted the first Italian exhibition dedicated to the artist. During the meeting after the screening, introduced and moderated by Naga, representatives intervene from “DIMMI di Storie migranti” and “Raccontami”, these are realities that use different media (autobiography, writing, video, photography, journalism) for a creative and unsettling narrative of the topic.

Instead, in the afternoon, Il flauto magico di Piazza Vittorio by Gianfranco Cabiddu and Mario Tronco will be screened (at 6 pm) with the participation of the Insieme Senza Muri committee, hub of third sector associations and introduced by the critic Barbara Sorrentini. Another way to talk about multiculturalism, starting with Mozart.
