Exhibition – Child Nation – Growing Up in Italy
Philanthropy House will host the “Child Nation – Growing Up in Italy” exhibition from 17 October 2023 to 12 January 2024.
“Child Nation – Growing up in Italy” by Riccardo Venturi is a multimedia project, promoted, and produced by Con i Bambini. The project is dedicated to the theme of childhood in Italy, combatting against educational poverty for children and youth.
The images and the documentary are the result of a two years journey, from North to South of Italy, through dozens of “educational sites” with the aim of highlighting the complexity and difficulties of growing up in Italy and trace an unprecedented narrative path, across children and youth fragility, lack of opportunity, also marked by an irrepressible hope in the future: fighting educational poverty equals to letting the country grow the possibility of change thanks to the opportunities given to thousands of children and their families.
