A gipsy site has recently settled in a small town. The local community’s reaction is swift: permanent demonstrations demand that the local authorities move the Roma elsewhere, provided it is far away. Debora Benincasa and Andrea Gottardello are on stage to assess this new form of racism: the attitude that is embedded with violence in current nationalist and identity-creating concepts, a form of racism that echoes the past when people were once defined as belonging to an inferior race.
