Starting from 12 April 2011 Rome’s Goethe-Institut has organized a series of events giving word to those individuals and organizations that try to oppose the Mafia in daily life, and involving film directors, journalists, cartoonists and many other representatives of the Italian and German civil society.

Next Tuesday, 10 May 2011 (at 20:30, free entrance), Art will be in focus: Which language, which aesthetics can best serve the anti-Mafia movements, making their efforts to fight against indifference more effective?
