The Turin World People Youth Intercultural Association and the Italian-Albanian Student Cultural Association "SALTO", with the collaboration of the Consulate of Albania in Piedmont, organize the event "Albania ... together".
The event "Albania together" is dedicated to the independence of Albania, so that the Albanian immigrants present in Italy and Piedmont do not forget their history, the roots of their people and their traditions. The Independence of Albania dates back to the 28 November 1912, at the end of the First World War, when some of the country's political exponents, including the well-known Ismail Qemali, declared independence from the Ottoman Empire thus saving the country from civil unrest and political.
The program includes the screening of the Italian-Albanian film "Lettere al Vento" by the Albanian director Edmund Budina, whose theme is immigration and the socio-cultural transformation of the post-communist regime. The film was presented at the London Film Festival, at the Taormina Festival and was awarded at the Syracuse Film Festival. The film will be presented by the author-director Edmund Budina.
The speeches of the guests and participants will frame the presentation of the film. This will be followed by the reading of some poems by the young author Leonora Ndroci, taken from the book "Being an unknown woman".
Their artistic works will be exhibited by two Albanian students / artists and the Groshgroup association that presents the "Shqiptor" exhibition.
In conclusion of this cultural event, we propose a live concert with songs and dances from Albania. An ethnic refreshment will end the event.
It is our wish, with the event, to make known to citizens with nationalities other than the Albanian one, the history of the Country of the Eagles so close to Italy, but still so little known because of the international isolation of which it suffered due of the dictator Enver Hoxha. The Albanian and Italian Authorities will participate in the event, including:• Zef Bushati - Plenipotentiary Minister and Albanian Deputy Ambassador in Italy • Giovanni Firera - Honorary Consul of Albania in Piedmont • Marta Levi - Councilor for Youth Policies of the City of Turin • Ilda Curti - Councilor for the Integration Policies of the City of Turin • Edmund Budina - Director of the film "Lettere al vento" • Eneida Gjeci - Student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan • Ermal Rexhepi - Student at the Academy of Fine Arts of Turin • Leonora Ndoci - Author of the book "Being a Unknown "The following associations have joined the event:1.
