#Narrazioni19 – edizione 2016 – è il secondo dei cinque appuntamenti annuali di riflessione sulla comunicazione e lo storytelling, per contribuire alla condivisione dei profili ideativi di Matera 2019, all’interno di politiche di sviluppo pensate per la Basilicata, il Mezzogiorno e l’Italia del futuro.
Ed è proprio in questo quadro che si articoleranno i diversi panel: si parlerà di nuove frontiere («#SudValley. Mezzogiorno digitale e Industria 4.0: cosa c’è da fare») e di opportunità per l’industria cinematografica («Camera a Sud: politiche, produzioni, territori e visioni dell’industria culturale del Mezzogiorno»). Ma il progresso è possibile solo se sono assicurate sicurezza e stabilità, soprattutto in un’area di frontiera posta tra Nord e Sud del mondo: per tale ragione si parlerà anche di Mediterraneo (con il panel «Al centro del Mare Nostrum. La sfida non più rinviabile della stabilizzazione del Mediterraneo»).
La giornata di studi sarà conclusa con l’intervista a Marcello Pittella, Presidente della Regione Basilicata.
Tuesday, October 11, at 15:30, in Rome at the Zuccari hall of Palazzo Giustiniani in Rome, will take place the presentation of the documentary “Emilio Colombo. Memorie di un Presidente”.
Between 2009 and 2013, the President Colombo shared with CGIAM (Geomorphology Integrated Centre for the Mediterranean Area) the design of a long documentary about his intense and long political experience. In more than thirty hours of interviews, gathered by Alessandra Peralta, Colombo retraced the crucial stages of his life, from childhood to the presidency of the European Parliament.
The documentary, also the result of a long and detailed research action, contains testimonies given by the main protagonists who have crossed its history, as Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Mariotto Segni, Jacques Delors, Arnaldo Forlani, Antonio Fazio, Oscar Luigi Scalfaro, Maria Romana de Gasperi, Gianni Pittella, Gianfranco Ravasi, Giorgio Napolitano and Giampaolo D’Andrea. The production, the result of positive synergies between different skills and professionalism, today represents an important historiographical source for the study of Italian and European history after World War II.
