The social context of Parma fully reflects the new Italian reality increasingly multiethnic. Even in
our city are clearly identifiable new citizens of Parma not of Italian origin. The city then collects
traditions that we are able to recognize but also new cultures sometimes from far away. It is this
coexistence of different stories which leads to the need to identify new social equilibrium, seeking
and building relational dynamics that bring together all citizens based on a real openness to the
other, overcoming fears and suspicions.
The project “Common Places-Little migrating stories”, shedding light on aspects of foreign people
usually ignored, intends to offer its own contribution inviting citizens to reflect and see each other
from a different point of view, probably closer.
The project “Common places – little migrating stories” was born in Milan on the initiative of the
Foundation Letter 27 non-profit organization and has been successfully carried out in Milan, Naples
and Modena in collaboration with organizations and institutions.
The project aims to facilitate the understanding between the people who live in Parma activating
a form of social communication with high emotional impact that integrates photos and words.
The project is an anthology of stories of many voices and many hands, authentic and meaningful
narratives, of men and women migrants of first and second generation, of different ages and from
dozens of countries around the world.
