Rhaeti&Co

Call for contributions (International multidisciplinary miscellany): Rhaeti&Co. New Multidisciplinary Data on the Tyrrhenian-Etruscan Question

Festival Biblico 2022 edition

Ancient peoples mistrusted writing as a means of transmitting knowledge. It is orality – they thought – that best guards the word from the risk of misunderstanding. From this point of view, the burning of books, which brutalised various pages of history, could not prevent the transmission of knowledge, the running of wisdom under the sky.
In Bradbury’s novel, too, there is a tension between the written and the oral. In a future, dystopian world, where literature is banned because it makes people think and opens up spaces of dangerous depth to the imagination, a few courageous dissidents preserve entire works in their memory, in order to hand them over to the civilisation of tomorrow. They have become true tabernacles of the word.
Memory and the depth of the heart are the fire to face the dark days. To keep oneself open to some tremor of revelation just when one risks drowning in superficiality.

2019/2020: RICU – Ricucire distanze e luoghi

Alteritas is involved in the two-year action-research project, which stems from the common interest expressed by a plurality of partners (Department of Cultures and Civilisations of the University of Verona, Alteritas, Verona OFF Photographic Association, CESTIM, Fondazione Nigrizia Onlus – African Museum of Verona, Ad Maiora Association, Tinlé Cooperative, COSPE Onlus) in promoting forms of coexistence and mutual recognition between refugees and host communities. It stems from the need, perceived as pressing in the historical and political framework we are currently experiencing, to restore centrality and narrative capacity to the individual experiences of refugees, i.e. to subtract their life stories from the generalisations of the news in order to re-dedicate them to the personal dimension, in which the visions of the world and the incorporated knowledge inherited from their previous lives can become tools for integration and recognition in the destination countries.
