Anita Mosca brings Italy and Naples on stage in Brazil. The theatre actress, who moved to Belo Horizonte nearly six years ago, has worked on the writings by Neapolitan playwright Enzo Moscato. "The Italian and Brazilian culture meet and blend well on stage," she told “Cartoline dall’altra Italia” (“Postcards from the other Italy”), the web series produced by the news agency “9colonne”, with the support of the Directorate General for Migration Policies of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. " Italy and Brazil enjoy many cooperation initiatives promoting interesting exchanges and artist-in residence programs. Brazilians are attracted and intrigued by our culture and our language," she commented. There are 67,000 Italian language students in Brazil. Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo play host to the two Italian schools in the country.
The interviews of “Postcards from the other Italy” give a dynamic, natural, practical and updated storyboard of the other Italy, the one beyond the national borders: the dreams, expectations, comparisons, joys and disappointments of young Italians who have opted for making an experience abroad, whether for will or for necessity, using their testimonials to maintain that unbreakable tie that links them to their Country of origin. The interviews span from Brussels to New York, from Rio de Janeiro to Shanghai: every week the web series schedules a new video interview to outline the profile of the new generation of emigrants, visible on the 9colonne.it website, on the YouTube channel of Nove Colonne and on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
