Caterina today is Martina Melilli with The Fourth day of School, 2015

For this Caterina issue we invited Martina Melilli, artist and filmmaker winner of ArteVisione 2017.

A boy tells about his fourth day of school, in a new country, after arriving from Africa. He’s supposed to be Italian, but in someway he is not. Without memory, the present continues chasing the past, in a circularity of History. The artist float in the ‘post-memory’ sea, letting her father speak out his own story that she re-tells choosing archival images, which serve the aim, allowing us to go beyond the individual experience, where the past of one person becomes the present of a nation in the time of massive migrations
