President Still I Rise presents his book 'Fortuna' in Palermo (ANSA) He calls it the "exercise of the theater of the oppressed": the audience is divided according to the color of their hair.

He calls it the "exercise of the theater of the oppressed": the audience is divided according to the color of their hair. Only browns and blacks have the right to speak and hold the scene, blondes can listen, others have to move away. Nicolò Govoni thus wanted to represent the condition of the oppressed to underline the senselessness of social injustices. The theatrical dimension of what he calls the "Human Lottery" serves him to promote "Still I Rise", the international organization he created to educate and protect refugee children, orphans and stateless people. Palermo was the first of eight stages of a journey that will touch Naples, Rome, San Marino, Turin, Lugano, Bologna and Milan.

The meeting in Palermo in the Rouge et Noir room was divided into two moments: first the emotional involvement of the public on the issues of social commitment and then the discussion on Govoni's book, "Fortuna", published by Rizzoli.

"Still I Rise" is committed to promoting the education of the least in the places of global migration: in Syria, Greece, Turkey, Kenya and soon also in Congo. "We create opportunities, social cohesion, inclusion. Life is a gift we give to others," says Govoni who lives in Nairobi. These are themes that he picks up in his book in which he imagines a future governed by selfishness and competition. Reversing the guidelines of migratory flows, the protagonists - an elderly woman and her two grandchildren - flee from a collapsing Europe. They arrive in the "City of Hope", a large refugee camp where power is managed by the Fortuna online platform, where only those who accumulate likes and followers can access humanitarian aid.

To open their eyes and minds to this reality where discrimination is law, the public is involved in an immersive experience.

The world is turned upside down and each participant induced to question their own identity.
