Wonder inside: stories of art and beauty from Italian prisons

Prisons separate convicts from the rest of the society which only sees walls and does not know how life is inside. Only a few people can enter prisons, often through complex procedures and bureaucratic delays. Prisons do not seem a place for wonder. Yet, there are people who have been committed for years to bringing art and culture into penal institutions, who tell about the lives of the people inside, who work there and try to ensure that all prisoners are given the chance of rehabilitation. Art, culture and innovation are the sparks spreading wonder in prisons, and from prisons they bring it back to us. Duration of the event: 2 hours.
