With the project entitled "Gibilterra. Geografie migranti" the two architects Federico Zanfi and Filippo Poli (f/p + f/z), have carried out research into the movements of migratory flows from Morocco to the south of Spain, analysing the crossing of boundaries at the Gibraltar Strait. For Going Public'04, they have proposed a complex work never seen before: an enormous carpet onto which the migration routes are drawn. The graphics are accompanied by graphics and the stories of those who have travelled those routes.

The film will have its NATIONAL DEBUT at the "Sala Truffaut" cinema on Wednesday 27th October in Modena: a double great event, since it is also the 25th anniversary of the death of Francois Truffaut.
