6,30pm – 19th January  2017 – Documentary Screening and Debate Event

An Experimental Path
(documentary, 40’, 2016, Italy)

We will present our first documentary “An Experimental Path” at Zazie nel Metrò, a new neighborhood cooperative in Rome. Activists of Comune del Crocicchio, different cooperatives, and Terra/Terra discuss food sovereignty and participatory guarantee.

In an experimental journey, a manufacturer of essential oils, a cattle breeder, a beekeeper and a baker demonstrate how “participatory guarantee” can become an alternative model to conceive food production and consumption, able to bring together independent small-scale farmers, producers and consumers in Italy in new forms of exchange and community. Screening and debate of the documentary with the author Fabrizio Loce-Mandes (School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics) and the coordinator of the project Alexander Koensler (Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice)

Actors of the documentary, peasants of Terra/Terra, activists of Comune del Crocicchio, members of Comitato Piazza Nuccitelli Persiani.
