The event is moderated by the journalist Elvira Terranova (Adnkronos). Promised Land ”is a text that deals with a forgotten humanity. Through personal stories and experiences, the goal is to shake consciences and to sensitize the media, institutions and all men and women of conscience so that the saving of lives at sea and an adequate and decent life is guaranteed to every living being. Talking about migratory flows means “telling fears and uncertainties of the journeys of hope, people with a face, a voice, a story, but also measuring the political and social dimensions of an unprecedented phenomenon. Giorgia Butera and Tiziana Ciavardini listen to them from all points of view: institutions, courts, NGOs, the media, but also public opinion on social networks – where migration is one of the most discussed and divisive issues “.
