We want food, we want it now. It doesn’t taste good though…
There’s a fil rouge linking the devastation of the planet and the gang-master system. People running from famines or forced out of work by industrial agriculture often become modern slaves. Matteo Dell’Acqua and Daniele Bocchiola, researches, will explain that if we don’t forget farmers’ knowledge, it’s possible to produce enough healthy food for all. On the day when we remember the victims of the mafia, the Human Rights Festival will focus on the infamy of the gang-master system (caporalato, in Italian) with a monologue by Elisabetta Vergani and the live coverage of the Libera demonstration from Foggia.

City Lights. Cities ignite hope
Human population is growing and clustering in cities. Nowadays, big cities have the power to become the force of change in the face of big contemporary issues. We just have to prevent what Italo Calvino imaged for Leonia, the imaginary city where everything was thrown in the trash, so far as to becoming “a fortress of indestructible leftovers”
