Common places: Little Migrating Stories


The social context of Parma fully reflects the new Italian reality increasingly multiethnic. Even in our city are clearly identifiable new citizens of Parma not of Italian origin. The city then collects traditions that we are able to recognize but also new cultures sometimes from far away. It is this coexistence of different stories which leads to the need to identify new social equilibrium, seeking and building relational dynamics that bring together all citizens based on a real openness to the other, overcoming fears and suspicions. The project "Common Places-Little migrating stories", shedding light on aspects of foreign people usually ignored, intends to offer its own contribution inviting citizens to reflect and see each other from a different point of view, probably closer. The project “Common places – little migrating stories” was born in Milan on the initiative of the Foundation Letter 27 non-profit organization and has been successfully carried out in Milan, Naples and Modena in collaboration with organizations and institutions. The project aims to facilitate the understanding between the people who live in Parma activating a form of social communication with high emotional impact that integrates photos and words. The project is an anthology of stories of many voices and many hands, authentic and meaningful narratives, of men and women migrants of first and second generation, of different ages and from dozens of countries around the world.
