My team and I are happy to support — though photography, video-making and graphic design — AfroWomenPoetry, a socio-cultural project whose goal is to open a window onto the women’s poetry coming from Sub-Saharan Africa. This is a way for women to tell their stories, their struggles and their hopes.
AfroWomenPoetry is a project founded by journalist Antonella Sinopoli and supported by Global Voices magazine. AfroWomenPoetry’s logo is by Anarkikka. My team: Dorin Mihai, Elisa Amati, Fatima Soraya Cissé. Location: Augeo Art Space

Liberamente Angela is a short movie dedicated to Angela Altieri MacDonald (1963 – 2010), a great friend of mine and a fantastic writer. The movie is inspired by Angela’s book The age of weakness, a collection of stories about her fighting against cancer, her hopes, and energy (change), her visions and ideas for a different world.
It’s a journey that — guided by Angela’s words, frame after frame, wave by wave — leads to the roots of womanhood. Roots that, as Angela stated, are not only those of femininity but also those of Mother Earth and of who defend life, creation, freedom, and the evolution of thought.
