Movies, sounds, installations about immigration.





Rome has been for centuries a city which included a high number of foreigners: travellers, people passionate for its historical heritage, workers; people here for short or long terms it doesn't matter much.


What does matter is that today the city still lives on its "multipolar" attitude, hosting on the total percentage of its population a rate of 6,9% of foreigners (rising the average italian one of almost 2 points).


All of them contribute to reshape the city its urban territory and its life.


To the interactions in between people we fully believe and to these interactions we want to give visibility through out project.





puce Portico 47 / Association Apollo 11 (

Portico 47 est le nom que s’est donné un groupe de poètes, chanteurs et conteurs originaires de différents pays. Fondé à Rome dans le quartier de l’Esquilin, où les italiens sont une « minorité ethnique », il est né de l’impulsion donnée par l’association Apollo 11 aux parcours de de vie présents dans quartier. La poésie devient alors un prétexte pour explorer la langue et les mots, pour susciter la rencontre entre individus issus de différentes cultures
