The project addresses the reality of women through the lens of migration in North Italy, with a special focus on social inclusion and exclusion of immigrant women in the city of Reggio Emilia. The project included a cycle of interviews done among local associations that offer support to women in vulnerable conditions and a theatre workshop. All these anthropological materials merge with poetry and images in the final performance.
The Festival 1,6,7 Contatto! has been sponsored by the municipality of Reggio Emilia since 2008 and it takes place in the neighbourhood of the railway station, a high-tension zone where migration dynamics are determining changes at the urban and social scale.
