Sant’elia. fragments of a daily space


Sant’elia. fragments of a daily space is a web-documentary, resulted of three years of research in the district of Sant’Elia in Cagliari (the largest social housing site in Sardinia, Italy) and from a “workshop of Tales” which mixed the experience of the inhabitants of the Association of Women” Viva Sant’Elia “, geographers and filmmaker.

It’s a geographical and visual narrative project that proposes urban reflections, stories, experiences, conflicts from the point of view of the inhabitants for understanding the actual meaning of “outskirt”.

It is also the fourth experience of a form of social narrative that we call “geo- telling” and that questions the practices and the emotions of a non- representative urban geography.

The web-doc won in 2017 the first prize in “AltroFestival” for social communication (Capodarco, Italy) and was selected as a finalist in “PriMed – Prix de la Mediterlanée” (Marseille, France). In 2018 was presented in the “American Association of Geographers SHORTS Days” (New Orleans, USA).
