Why has a group of young people linked to Via Scalabrini 3 decided to organise and is now carrying out (6 to 25 September 2019) a journey alongside migrants along the Balkan route, from Gaziantep in Turkey to Trieste? Why want to collect and then tell the sparks of solidarity that shine along this path? Why commit oneself to building human and solidarity relations for a society without ideal and real frontiers, pursuing the conviction that “humanity does not stop”? Why raise our voices and denounce the often closed eyes of Europe in the face of the tragedy of countless human beings? Some of the reasons linked to InInterRotta Humanity: a journey that, starting from Turkey, will touch Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, ending in Trieste; a journey of humanity, told through social networks, that will become a textual and audiovisual narrative.
