Vado Verso Dove Vengo


Vado Verso Dove Vengo
I’m Going Where I Came From

A documentary screening By Nicola Ragone

Sunday, June 28 at 11am Via zoom
Brunch with an Italian Director

Join Luigi Vitelli and Antonio Imbesi as they present their documentary Vado Verso Dove Vengo and the video installation entitled I’m Going Where I Come From. Both works investigate and compose, from an anthropological point of view, passages from personal stories of Lucanians who emigrated abroad (both old and new emigration), and put them in relation with the stories of those who remain in Basilicata, to make the two communities recognized in a practice of choral construction of new meanings of their places of origin.
