Caravansaray Selinunte San Siro

Duration: 75 minutes

Caravansaray Selinunte San Siro is an artistic and social project that has been created in the community, placing the inhabitants of a marginalised district at the centre. Five writers in residence in the area have constructed a series of dialogues with the residents of San Siro, with the intermediation of Social Guardians, a service set up by the Municipality of Milan. The dialogues contain stories, life experiences and short narratives, lending a voice to the residents through a show that will be staged at the Piccolo Teatro Grassi with thanks to the collaboration of the Municipality of Milan. The days running up to the play will see short theatrical events in the district, in order to allow for the narration and daily sharing of some of the customs and traditions of the various ethnicities present in San Siro. The show is free of charge for the residents of the district and the entire city of Milan. A series of free buses will also be organised in order to transport the residents of the district from Piazzale Segesta to the Piccolo Teatro and back.
