of Atlante

Back to all news

On Atlas of Transitions' YouTube webpage four of the videos recorded during the workshop ‘Atlante - location scouting for a documentary film’, by ZimmerFrei, have just been released. Created and conducted by Anna de Manincor and Massimo Carozzi, the workshop included activities such as observation of urban places, writing, sound recording, video documentation and archive research. The four videos, which were presented to the public during the festival organised by Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione, Right to the City | Diritto alla Città (15-24 June, Bologna, Italy), are:

‘La procedura’, in which one of the participants in 'Atlante' tells his own experience of the asylum-seeking process on a Saturday afternoon, in the middle of a pedestrian area in the city center of Bologna.

‘Cirenaica/Zona U’. Here, the obsession with IDs is told by a Chinese girl while singing Mozart softly at a closed market and in a public place near the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.

In 'via del Pratello', Tea tells her memory of the first time she watched ‘Amarcord’, by Federico Fellini, in Piazza Maggiore, Bologna, and laughed together with the people around.

'Landmark: Salaborsa' tells a migrant story about leaving the country of origin, learning Italian, and dreaming of flying to the U.S. The video was recorded near Salaborsa, the main public library in Bologna, next to which there are Piazza del Nettuno (Fountain of Neptune) and Piazza Maggiore.
