Voices from around the world

"Voices from the world. Foreign women tell their stories": on February 15 Vatican Radio will present the new edition of the literary competition organized by the cultural association Mother Tongue involving women from all over the world in a journey into women's writing through literature and reality, images and imaginary worlds, cultures and religions. Since 2005 the competition – a permanent project of the region of Piedmont and the International Book Fair of Turin, under the patronage of the European Commission’s Representation in Italy - is targeted at foreign women residing in Italy and Italian women who want to relate to foreign women. A space, in short, to give a voice to those who normally do not have one. The meeting of 15 February will be an opportunity to discuss, as well as women's writing, issues related to migration. Speakers include Daniela Fennel, creator of the Mother Tongue competition, the writers Enisa Bukvic (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Nora Frey (Argentina), Tiziana Colusso and Anna Rosa Iraldo Invernizzi (Italy), Claudileila Lemes Dias (Brazil) and Rahma Nur (Somalia); Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Press Office of the Holy See and of Vatican Radio Stephanie Kunzemann of Roma 3, Rome, Anne Preckel, a journalist of the German editorial staff of Vatican Radio.
