Life stories invites the participants, after having watched SICILIA, to tell in their turn the story – real or fictional – of the migrations in their family and to play their own role by leading the show. The participants will be able to make the audience hear their story, listen to those of others and share with them all the culinary specialties they brought. It will also be a time of art and conviviality to live together.
