«Sconfinate Frontiere» – Boundless frontiers

Book Presentation and Discussion

Circolo di Sinistra Italiana
Via Zabaglia 22, Rome

After the successful first book presentation in February, organised by CSER (Centro Studi Emigrazione Roma), Sinistra Italiana will host the second round of presentations on 9 March.


The book «Sconfinate Frontiere. Riace: l’eccezione che ha rifiutato la regola» (Boundless Borders. Riace: the exception that refused the rule) by Fulvia Teano and Alessandro Tedde analyses the particular democratic self-government of migration that has developed over the years in Riace, Calabria. In particular, the authors begin their analysis of the migration phenomenon by examining three particular aspects that have taken place under recent Italian governments.

The migration phenomenon will be analysed in the light of the failure to sign the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the securitarian management of the migration crisis. It will also critically examine the distorted media narrative on migration.
