Stones and Migrations: Mare Nostrum, a School Project

Michela Nocita    Università La Sapienza Roma    



Mare Nostrum is a cultural project for students about ancient and modern migration in the Mediterranean. It is realised by Liceo Classico “Pilo Albertelli” in Rome. Conferences, movies, reportages and readings are sources to understand modern migration. The main source for us is the informative website Open Migration, “a project which aims to give data, competencies and knowledge in order to inform and raise awareness on migrants’ and migrations’ issues” (from the website). The main sources for ancient migration and routes overseas are selected epigraphic texts. Migration cannot be simplified through stereotyped formulas and prejudices. People of different nationality, ethnicity and religion travel because of multiple reason. The conclusive aim of this project is to cast out prejudices about foreigners and refugees understanding ancient and modern data.
