Verona, the city of love, also has neighborhoods which have been forgotten and marginalized. Veronetta is one: a neighborhood which for years has housed mostly migrants and citizens of different foreign origin, with limited integration. A neighborhood which has seen episodes of ethnic violence and is depicted as one of the drug market scenes in Verona. A neighborhood which has been excluded from the municipality developments plans and abandoned. Undervalued, with no attention to its great architectural heritage, not involved in the city’s artistic and touristic initiatives, excluded in part also from the Christmas lightings which decorate the city in winter festive times.
So the "Grenze Festival" decided to bring Beauty there. We want to display the photos of people working in Veronetta in one of the local parks.
Beauty can be integration. The aim of this INSIDE OUT Group Action is to attract the attention of the rich city and to build different perspectives on identity. We want to change the skin of this neighborhood, to show a part of the real Veronetta, to highlight its intrinsic richness, which comes from diversity.
