LIVE TALK WITH MATTEO CACCIA, author of Oltre il confine podcast.
Sunday 13 December
Sunday 13 December at 11:30 for LUCIA Festival, a live talk with Matteo Caccia, author of Oltre il confine podcast.
The talk will be live streamed on Radio Papesse, Lucia Festival, Manifattura Tabacchi e FUL Magazine Facebook pages.
What political, ideal, ethical reasons drive someone to abandon a quiet life to face the hell of war in Syria? To fight ISIS where it is strongest and rooted? This is what Matteo Caccia tries to investigate with Oltre il Confine, his new podcast series.
The protagonist of the story is Karim Franceschi, born in 1989 in Casablanca to an Italian ex-partisan father and Moroccan mother. Growing up in Senigallia, in 2015 Karim left for Kobane as a volunteer for a humanitarian project, then he decided to stay and join the armed struggle against Isis. In 2016 he founded an international brigade that will play a very important role in the fall of Raqqa, capital of the Islamic State. Two years of struggle, the fears, the hopes, the reasons for an extreme choice: in Oltre il Confine, it is Karim himself who tells the story.
Radio Papesse will listen to it together with Matteo Caccia and with him they will try to understand how to approach it and how to tell such a story, how to build a balance between narration and first-hand memory.
