Santiago, Italia: Stories of Refugees of the Past in Today’s World of Tightening Borders

Sunday, November 22, 2020 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Inserra Chair Event Flyer

Join us on Sun Nov. 22 3pm EST for Santiago, Italia: Stories of Refugees of the Past in Today’s World of Tightening Borders, a virtual conversation that will focus on the fascinating story of Chilean refugees supported by the Italian government after the 1973 golpe by Pinochet, as portrayed in Nanni Moretti's award-winning documentary Santiago, Italia (2019). Featuring Maura Morales Bergmann (the documentary's cinematographer) and Jaime Baeza Freer (Political Science, Universidad de Chile), the event comes at a historical moment for Chile after the recent referendum and creates the opportunity to address issues of democracy and human rights across countries then and now. 

The event marks the beginning of a partnership between Inserra/MSU and the prestigious Academy of Italian Cinema David di Donatello Awards, the Italian equivalent of the Academy of Motion Pictures in the U.S. It also marks the launching of a new event series called "Dentro/Afuera: The Interconnections between Italian and Latin American/Spanish Cultures," designed in connection with our campus' designation as Hispanic-serving institution. We are very pleased to collaborate with the Office of Hispanic Serving Initiatives and the Department of Political Science and Law on this occasion.

Register for the webinar here.

Fees: This event is free and open to the public.
