A choral journey that is made up of many elements from farewells, to the encounter and clash with the foreign country, but also moments of nostalgia, daily joys and sorrows, integration into the new reality, comparison and reflection with immigration today. From the perspective of network projects and on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the Umbrian museum, the initiative aims to strengthen the link and collaboration between the Pietro Conti Emigration Museum of Gualdo Tadino and the National Emigration Museum of Genoa, with the aim of jointly promoting and disseminating studies and research on the historical heritage of Italian emigration, enhancing the work of each individual region.
