DORIS & HONG
Leonardo Cinieri Lombroso
MIGRATIONS, PLURALITY, COEXISTENCE
Hong loves art. She studies it at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. Having just arrived from China, she answered an advertisement for an apartment rent by Doris, a lively 70 year old Italian who was born in Eritrea during the italian colonial period. Their meeting relates to the encounter between two cultural worlds, the East and the West. Their lives and stories interwine like two rivers from different mountains.
