The project highlights the relationship between Sapienza University and the San Lorenzo neighbourhood, from the main campus building in 1935 to the present day.
It aims to reconstruct the history of this relationship through oral testimonies, visual sources and photographic workshops carried out by both Sapienza and ISFCI students; collective memory and cultural identity, sense of belonging to the territory and active citizenship, experiments with oral history and photography as tools for visual awareness, narration and creativity will be the main ingredients of this original event.
