The interviews have been collected in the cities of Milan, Turin, and other Italian northen cities by a group of psychologists, researchers and journalists.
The aim of the event is to suggest a novel way to re-think "common places": talking about the way of identity, symbolic images, strange languages, far from stereotypes that engender diffidence, transforming a hurried moment of distraction into the possibility of a smile and of complicity with the "Other-Alter".
The Milanese leg of "Luoghi comuni" is only a beginning: everyone is invited to participate with a personal story writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. These new voices will join the original nucleus travelling to other Italian cities (Roma, Torino, Padova, Verona, Bologna), on other means of transport, in other common-places. Moreover, the reaction of the public to the billboards will be recorded in videos and photographs, captured and set by Asinitas/Confini "Audiovisual".
A limited edition catalogue of the exhibition is available in Moleskine 9x14 cm format.
