Organised with support from Siae and Mibact as part of the scheme Per chi crea, the project Science for Suburbs, in collaboration with Associazione Maremetraggio, has seen forty-five students from the Istituto Deledda Fabiani become makers and directors of three documentaries via a hands-on video workshop. The three works tackle some of the key topics of EuroScience Open Forum 2020 through the eyes of those who live in the suburbs. The project was developed through three workshop phases, under the guidance of hands-on video trainers.
