Three days of study and debate on the subject of immigration and identity. That was the focus of an initiative organised by the “Stills” photography gallery and the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh as part of the “Second Sight” three-year project. The Stills Gallery is currently holding an exhibition featuring the work of Robert Capa, Frank Monaco, Adrian Paci and Fausto Colavecchia.
Events at the Cultural Institute featured discussions, film screenings, and literary and theatrical works on the subject of migration. The rich programme included a screening of Anna Chiappa’s film “SOS Arandora Star”, which tells the story of the ship, carrying Italian internees, that was hit by a German torpedo off the coast of Ireland on 2 July 1940, with a tragic loss of life. This was followed by a round table on migration policies in the United Kingdom, Canada and Italy. Read more, in Italian.
