Book: “Feeling Italian” by SIETAR Italia

Dear SIETAR Europa Members and Friends,

We are happy to share with you SIETAR Italia’s announcement on the launch of their new book Feeling Italian


The Feeling Italian book has finally been published by SIETAR Italia. Do you want to know more about what Feeling Italian means today?

The Feeling Italian book uses the photographic language to explore the multicultural identities and global citizenship.

89 images selected from an international jury, together with personal stories and narratives (Italian and English) show the complexity of the Italian identity in the global context today.

Feeling Italian allows to reflect on the dynamic, fluid and plural concept of identity. The book offers an innovative stimulus for intercultural dialogue and a useful tool for intercultural education and training.

180 pages with 89 photographs completed by photographers’ narratives and short essays in Italian and in English written by the book’s editors, Maura Di Mauro and Bettina Gehrke, and the members of the Scientific Committee Milton Bennett, Sergio Di Giorgi and Matteo Balduzzi.
