"We are pleased to contribute to an international cooperation project which has as its main target the young people - comments the president of the Cassa di Risparmio di Modena Foundation, Andrea Landi - In this case, moreover, we do not limit ourselves to financial support, but we provide the didactic headquarters and the facilities of the Photography Foundation, used during the rest of the year by the students of the master and of the curator course, so as to make the training activities for Italian and Albanian filmmakers".
“The Modena Association for others, active from the 2003, realizes through its volunteers solidarity projects in the health, education, agri-food and distance support fields. Moxa welcomed the possibility of promoting and supporting this new project by developing, in parallel, research and study on relations between Modena and Emilia and Romagna with Albania during the twentieth century - adds Elisabetta Frascaroli di Moxa "We are in fact implementing, with the support of the ANMIG and the collaboration of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, of the Civic Archaeological Ethnological Museum of Modena and the Voice-off Association, a path to involve Emilia-Romagna and Albanians in a project to recover memories with the aim of promoting a better knowledge of that historical period through exhibitions, publications, study days. "
"During the training course, mixed troupes of Italian and Albanian participants will be formed - explains Cristiano Regina of Voice Off – The goal will be the realization of a documentary that tells stories of lives on the road, of stories that come from the sea, that intersect in ports and leave traces, of spaces or limits that are not only geographical or physical, but above all symbolic. From the comparison between the young will surely be born many hints and stimuli that will contribute to the creation of their story and to reflect on the close link between the two countries “
