At the Cremonesi Room. Free admission

More than one and a half million young people were born in Italy to foreign parents, or who came here as children and took root in what they consider "their" country. What bonds do they maintain with the traditions inherited from their parents and from the lands they come from, what bonds do they have with the values of the societies in which they are growing up? What role do family, school and other environments in which they live play in the construction of their identity?

An opportunity for a close and realistic look at what is happening in our territory comes from the multimedia exhibition “New generations. The young faces of multi-ethnic Italy ”, scheduled from 9 to 16 February 2019 in Crema at the Sale Agello (Piazzetta Einifred Terni de Gregorj 5).

The initiative, sponsored by the Municipality of Crema - Department of Welfare and by the Diocese of Crema, is promoted by a group of associations that have been working for some time on the integration and inclusion front: Porto Palos - Associazione Aid al Studio, Centro Culturale Cremasco Stefan Wyszynski, Migrantes Foundation, Diocesan Missionary Center of Crema, MCL - Christian Workers Movement.

The exhibition proposes a journey into the environments populated by this youth universe and, enhancing the testimonies collected live and reproduced in panels and videos, investigates the role of the family, the school and places of aggregation, the relationship between traditions and inherited values from the lands of origin and those proposed by Italian society, on some hot issues such as citizenship and terrorism, which in recent years has seen many second generation young people raised in Europe as protagonists.

It is not a "thesis" exhibition, but an attempt to give voice to the multiplicity of attitudes present among these young people, in which the prevailing fact is however the desire to present themselves as a sort of bridge between cultures, a meeting point between often distant worlds but which as a result of the migratory dynamics have become ever closer and more interconnected.

They are protagonists of that culture of encounter repeatedly indicated by Pope Francis as an antidote to the "globalization of indifference" and as a fundamental ingredient for building a society where different identities can coexist and mutually enrich each other.

The exhibition - which can be visited free of charge every day from 9 to 13 and from 15 to 18 and in the evening from 21 to 23 Tuesday 12 and Friday 15 February - investigates the relationship between the traditions inherited from parents and the values proposed by Italian society, on the role of schools and meeting places in the dynamics of integration, on the theme of citizenship, on the drifts of terrorism that have seen second and third generation young people as protagonists, on what constitutes Italian identity today.

To deepen the issues dealt with, a meeting-testimony with the protagonists and authors of the exhibition is planned, on Friday 8 February at 9 pm in the Sala Cremonesi (Piazzetta Einifred Terni de Gregorj 5).
