“Le mille e una notte” (One Thousand and One Night) is a storytelling and community engagement activity aimed at strengthening community spirit among the residents of the Dora area through enhancing the knowledge of personal stories of its residents.
Using the Tellingstones app it is possible to explore the area along the river and discover the everyday life stories of the residents. Every single story is linked to a specific area.
As into the original collection of Middle Eastern folk tales, it was thanks to the stories that Sharazad was able “to go through the night” keeping herself safe from the anger of the Sultan, the biographies and stories of the neighborhood aim at going beyond stereotypes and prejudices in order to foster social inclusion.
Who wants to tell its own story can use the Tellingstones App (available for iOS and for Android) to share files or video selfies with biographies and stories about the neighborhood or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
