Roma Prisoners & Prospective Teachers

The 1st performance in prison in Italy

In Italy the 1st performance in prison took place on 31 May 2019, shortly after the start of the workshops with prospective teachers and some young people belonging to the Roma and Sinta communities held in the Prison District of Sollicciano, the main detention center in Florence and the Tuscany region.

The performance began with the watching of a short film produced by Laura Halilovic, a young Roma woman – Io, la mia famiglia Rom e Woody Allen – whose object was her life path that brought her from the social and cultural reality of a nomad camp to that of the city, with the contrasts and conflicts that you have experienced on this path.

Scenes of life characteristic of the Roma community, shown in the film, gave the Roma prisoners the opportunity to comment and spontaneously present songs, music and dances.

This performance represented an excellent opportunity for a better mutual knowledge not only among the prospective teachers and Roma prisoners, but also among the Roma prisoners themselves, mostly unknown to each other (especially males and females).
