A Train to Utopia

A beautiful Italy and a multicolored city of São Paulo. Perfume of pizza, Pomodoro, and basil, all the aromas tangled in a musical documentary, which portrays the passion for a land and for what one imagines of it. What demands us to leave our house, searching for our place, even if we already have one? A journey to a place that does not exist, the discovery of an Italy imagined and revealed to a Brazilian who wants to obtain his Italian citizenship through his father's homeland. Memories are forwarded, they do not respect borders, and they become shared experiences of women and men who believe in a more human world, in integration, inclusion, resistance, and, above all, in the dignity of human life.
