Fuoriporta

VIDEOS, POSTCARDS, DRAWINGS, WRITTEN AND ORAL STORIES, 2020

Fuoriporta is a project born in 2020 during the pandemic and entirely developed by distance, with the help of postmen and the medium of postcards. The research is a collaboration with Giulia Ferrante, sociologist and linguist, and aim to create an online archive of memories and stories linked to the village of Pennapiedimonte in Abruzzo, Italy. A second part of the project Cartoline di Viaggio again involves citizens that, through an online creative workshop, designed postcards to reach the first, second and third generation of migrants from Pennapiedimonte that now live abroad. The result of this correspondence is exhibited during the festival Racconti di Viaggio organised in September 2021. Using a social and anthropological approach, the project uses different disciplines to plan and co-work together with the inhabitants.
