With the participation of 3 classes of high schools, 230 artists - coming from Albania, Austria, Bosnia Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, San Marino, Palestine, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey - the city of Bari hosted at the Kismet Theatre the Prebiennale in the presence of Michelangelo Pistoletto, Councillor Loredana Capone of the Ambassador of Tunisia to Italy AnilaBitri Lani, President BJCEM Dora Bei, artistic director Driant Zeneli and President Michele Capasso.
Immediately afterwards the guests attended the show "Kater I Rades. La Naufragio "created by" La Biennale di Venezia "and" Theatre Koreja ", with music by Admir Shkurtaj and libretto by Alessandro Leogrande: a project that recalls the tragedy of 1997, when the sinking of the small Albanian boat caused one of the greatest tragedies in the Mediterranean.
The artists' journey is, therefore, on the contrary, strongly desired by the Puglia Region, in support of cultural policies and integration, in deep synergy with the Albanian Government. It is a kind of migration of young creative minds who go to live in a land in full social and cultural rebirth: from Bari in over 120 immediately after the show they climbed on a ferry that took them to Durres, and on board there was a conversation on the theme "Art and migrations" with the Greek sculptor Costas Varotsos, Albanians Adrian Paci and Roland Seiko and other internationally renowned guests, who joined the initiative.
Many members of the Anna Lindh Foundation's Italian Network participated, congratulating the Koreja Theatre and Kismet Theatre for the show and the organization.
