Important partnerships established in the past with cultural associations, non-profit organizations, and public and private foundations have allowed us to gain in time experience and skills, and to physically host and sustain the archive and its activities.
Our recent partnership with Circolo Gianni Bosio has allowed us to share operating quarters at Rome’s Casa della Memoria e della Storia and to launch a series of joint projects on migrant memories, together with the “L’Orientale” University of Naples and the Istituto Centrale per i Beni Sonori e Audiovisivi of Rome.
These partnerships have led to common pathways culminating in educational and cultural initiatives, public events and advocacy actions, and to the production of feature films – some of which were made through Asinitas - such as Come un uomo sulla terra, 2008 (“Like a Man on Earth”); Una scuola italiana, 2009 (“An Italian School”); C.A.R.A. Italia, 2010 - while others have been carried out with the support of lettera27 and Open Society Foundations.
See: Soltanto il mare (“Nothing but the Sea”, 2011) and Benvenuti in Italia (“Welcome to Italy”, 2012). The musical CD Istaraniyeri (a collection of migrants’ songs and music in Rome) was produced in partnership with Circolo Gianni Bosio in 2011.
