- Cercando Europa -

In the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, there is a small and remote island called Ventotene. Over 80 years ago on this island, a group of “hungry” and passionate people – confined there in isolation by the fascist regime due to their dangerous thoughts – started working on an idea. An idea which envisioned a united Europe capable to end all conflicts and wars that were dividing it from within: the “Ventotene Manifesto” written by Altiero Spinelli and Ernesto Rossi, one of the fundamental documents for the birth of the European Union. 

Today, starting from the artwork by world renown French artist Daniel Buren (A Colored Manifesto 2020), 7 young European activists – coming from the six founding members of the EU and one from the UK – have come to Ventotene to fully immerse themselves in the history of this island, looking towards the future of Europe and how young people could help shaping it. 

Looking for Europa premiered at the Ventotene Film Festival, it was presented to the press at the 78th edition of the Venice Film Festival, and it will also feature at the upcoming Italy on screen today NY – Film&TvSeries Fest.
