Sicilian Mafia Dissidence and the Disappearing Ladino in Greece
Anastasia presents a video exploring the nexus of language and landscape through the disappearance of judeao-spanish/ladino in Greece.
Valeria’s intervention includes a performative reading from a ‘balcony’ representing the main dissident found in Castelvetrano, Sicily, Giuseppe Cimarosa. Son of a cousin of the current mafia Godfather, Giuseppe responded to the family by declaring his position against the mafia publicly. The project is an homage to his brave act of resistance.
Invited guests include Anna Sergi, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Essex with a specialism in organised crime.
Food and drink will be available to purchase from Gaia Pulses at The Baths after the event.
This event will take place at Old Baths, Hackney Wick, E9 5JH
