News of February

With ANNOTU, the new Lunàdigas project funded by the call for Studies and Research of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia, the Live Archive opens up to the island’s linguistic variants and to researching on the topic of parenting and non-parenting from all aspects.

The collection phase started in recent months has ended and we are already working on the new section of the site, in which all the testimonies of Sardinian women and men who gave their contribution will soon be accessible in the original language, as well as subtitled in Italian and English.

Women without children, but also men, even mothers and fathers: to begin exploring the reasons for those who do have children – rarely investigated – it seemed fair tu us to start from Sardinia, where Lunàdigas was born, and from the mother tongues present on the island.
The languages of the heart, those that correspond to the most intimate layer – and at the same time connected to the roots of the world – of all of us.

News  also for the International Fund, with the testimony of the sisters Antonia and Franziska, collected in Germany: Antonia cannot have children due to cancer. Franziska is willing to be a surrogate mother for her, but the law forbids it. In Lunàdigas they tell their reasons.

We return to Italy with the testimony collected at the home of Susi, distributor of the film Lunàdigas, or concerning childfree women, together with her friends Liliana, Marisa, Rosanna and Sonia: five friends who have been – and still are – activists in the feminist movement, dialogue and discuss the theme of motherhood and non-motherhood, bringing to light their own experiences.

For the Impossible Monologues series, the portraits imagined by Carlo A. Borghi’s pen of two great women (for very different reasons!): the English writer Jane Austen, voiced by Monica Trettel, and Giovanna D ‘arco, played by Vanessa Aroff Podda

In the Stories section, Claudia Mazzilli adds another Lunàdiga reading tip with It’s a sad day when nationalism becomes the lesser evil, review of Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe, “a brave work that deconstructs the very concept of border”.
