There is an imaginary yet real line, an open wound, a place for and for no one and of which everyone is, invisibly, a part: this is the frontier that both separates and unites the North of the democratic, liberal and civilized world and the poor South, in the grip of war, backward and undemocratic.
In the last of the events in the series Clandestine encounters beyond the frontiers of art, Alessandro Leogrande invites us aboard the ships of the Mare Nostrum operation, introduces us to traffickers and baby-smugglers, together with the stories of the survivors, he describes another frontier, that of Greece and that of the Balkans, examining the suffering, the chaos and the indifference of our time.
