Ivana Pinna and Thomas Keis will talk about the HUB SARDINIA – Caminu a Su Connottu* and the manifesto Ynode.
“Based on the assumption that walking is an activity that connects the human being with the territory, in July 2021, in Nurri, a rural area in the center of Sardinia, indicated suitable for the storage of a radioactive waste deposit, it took place several activities focused on the practise of walking. The initiative investigated how walking could highlight or intervene in political, personal, social, economic and ecological issues. The intention was to treat a moment of awareness towards environmental problems, reconnecting with the landscape, the culture of that territory, by finding a link with the past.”
