Presentation of Davide Coltri's debut collection, Where is my home (minimum fax)
Khalat, a young Syrian Kurd, leaves her hometown to attend university in Damascus; the outbreak of civil war destroys his dreams but not his will to resist violence and bring his family to safety. Anneke is a Danish girl with a very clear goal: to put her life at the service of the weakest; a mission in Darfur forces her to go beyond the limit of altruism and face a new difficult beginning. Théogène, proud principal of an elementary school, refuses to accept the prejudices and superstitions that divide the people of the refugee camp in which they find themselves into two factions. He will pay the price of his consistency with the Rosette bride.
These are just some of the true stories that Davide Coltri has collected in the course of his work in the humanitarian field, and which bear witness to a not yet shared present: distant but at the same time very close, universal lives.
Where is my house shows us civil wars and acts of terrorism but also solidarity, resistance and hope for a different life. With ferocity and delicacy, Coltri tells the stories that go beyond the boundaries, the house that has been lost and what - now more than ever - is hoped to find.
