The “Verità e Visioni” (Truths and Visions) project
Truth and Visions is a social research and communication laboratory for the development of a multilingual multimedia magazine, of documentaries and of other possible cultural projects, promoted by Filippo Ciardi, a freelance journalist, photoreporter and filmmaker.
- To investigate and to tell in an independent way facts and stories that show “truths” and stimulate “visions” on contemporary society;
- To deepen economic, social, environmental and cultural issues by seeking connections between the local and global dimensions;
- To value direct contact with sources, fact checking, testimony;
- To experiment with different research methods and “on and offline” storytelling: articles, photos, videos, audio and music, creative performances, cultural activities and presentations on the territory.
The project is animated by the consciousness that human experience and society should constantly seek a plural truth, observed through various points of view and generating multiple visions. The title of the project refers in fact to the double value in Italian, singular and plural, of the word “veritá” (that means truth and truths), to the fact that its representation can change according to the point of view of the observer, and the possibility that its investigation and its storytelling can raise new visions and actions. Even with the awareness of being able to offer only a partial interpretation of facts and experiences, it is believed that achieving the mission of this project can at least get us closer to “truths” and stimulate “visions” that are useful for personal and collective thought and reflection.
