A travel diary, a journey of thirty years through the changes of a world in turmoil. New geographies and borders, fragile countries that are born, ancient nations that die out like cold stars, entire communities forced into exile. A book of memories, dreams and memories. A true story, authentic and unfaithful: a story, after all, extremely liar.

Friday, December 13 at 9.00 pm - Biblioteca delle Oblate

Screening of the video OLTRE IL MURO by Agostinelli Maestri
Meeting with:
Elena Marcheschi (professor of "Art and multimedia" - University of Pisa)
Alessandro Agostinelli (Festival Director of Travel)
Marzia Maestri (expert in multimedia and cross-media languages)

The fall of the wall told through the eyes of a generation that on 9 November 1989 found itself in Berlin to be reunited, with the hope of a new time, really beyond the patterns of the post-Second World War. There was the desire to return the blue to the gray German sky, because there was a rising idea of a new great united Europe. But already in those days they began to see the signs of new closures and old nationalist regurgitations.
