Attending the workshop with them are a group of non-accompanied minors from the CivicoZero centre and a group of students from the Tassi High School in Rome.
The young people have examined and discussed the photographic exhibition by Letizia Battaglia Just For Passion and in particular the shots of children from the city of Palermo which have served to stimulate reflections on the condition of infancy and the role of women in the participants countries of origin.
The conclusion of the workshop will also be an opportunity for encounters and exchange with the museum visitors.
