BOOK PRESENTATION

A book about the occupation of the abandoned Olympic village in Turin (Italy)

ABBANDONI

Assembramenti umani e spazi urbani:

rifugiati e negligenti politiche di accoglienza

http://www.seb27.it/content/abbandoni

This book tells a story of abandonments: abandoning an urban area, abandoning people. The occupation of the abandoned Olympic village in Turin, locally known as ExMoi, is one of the largest Italy has ever seen: since 2013 over 1,200 migrants and refugees coming from more than 25 different countries have been living in four buildings which were part of the Olympic Village hosting the athletes during the 2006 Olympic Winter Games. Some have been supporting these people in solidarity, others have been campaigning against them, while public institutions have proven to be absent and forgetful. Is ExMoi a ghetto we are bound to forget? Or is it a place where living together in dignity is possible? What needs to be done for this to happen? And how long would that arrangement last? This story unfolds in Turin, but it reveals faults and inadequacies in the reception of migrants and refugees that are common all over Italy. Telling this story is a call to make up for what triggered it.

Both in religious and lay literature the word “hermit” is often misused to refer to whoever leads a solitary life, including misanthropes. In religious contexts, it is often used as synonymous with “anchorite” (a word coming from the Greek ἀναχωρέω, anachōreō, which means “to retreat”, “to leave for the region outside the city”),living alone like a recluse. However, it is important to draw a clear distinction between hermitic and anchoritic life. Canon 603 states precise criteria for those who wish to follow the hermitic vocation, which is recognized by Roman Catholic Church as one of the “other forms of consecrated life”. These people are usually called “consecrated hermits”.
