them or at the project's release party like a drawer. i came for israel to germany and i'm a quick germans like to. mainly. when in rome the israelis started selling the german favorites on the street and over the years was able to build up his own business. i love berlin berlin has a place in my heart with special about berlin is the opportunities it gives me to really spread my wings. the fake story in the plan of them in a company has its own q.r. code scanned the card with your phone to view a 360 degree video of the location. the celebration was also a time for people to literally get a taste of what kind of berlin has to offer like the work of jennifer melinda schmidt the kenyan born swiss woman is an actress comedian. a restaurant or. a
restaurant is called smarts a heidi which literally translates to black heidi that boasts the best swiss fare berlin has to offer. but i wanted to bring a piece of switzerland to berlin that bell you know you're in here feels like you're in a swiss ski cabin and that's really nice for the soon. for those who love the more tactile the series also features the work of the kashmir sisters for the past 2 years sirens vanny has been selling clothing made of specially sourced pure mongolian kashmir. is a very stylish cool city it's so colorful a multicultural it has everything and that's why i also want to be here. planted barely in a story of diversity 50 international entrepreneurs and their insider tips the very best the city has to offer.
and this the planet berlin book is in english and german so it's a great way to learn some german but also be reports on euro max every week and of course it's on facebook at v.w. culture a very personal take on berlin by people from 50 different cultures. now leading up to the european union elections this coming weekend we've been visiting e.u. countries and finding out from people involved in the arts what they think about the political and social situation in that country at the moment today we meet the italian writer francesco milan play in rome italy of course as being the front line of europe's migration crisis and melandri is very critical of the current italian government's policies. romans called the eternal city for good reason buildings that date back to the roman empire a stone's throw from the vatican and other architectural masterpieces. rome is also
a place where refugees and other migrants have gathered hoping for a better life in europe although they're not always welcomed by the local population. italy's far right interior minister material so they may has gone so far as threatening to punish groups that rescue refugees from the mediterranean and bring them to italy. that's against the constitution even if he says it's possible it's legally impossible but once again he's managed to ensure the topic hits the headlines this is the strategy to occupy all the space in the media and the country's culminated space even more caught up with her from the men pick a spot you couldn't leave off the by izzy francesca made under his novel sunway juice or write blood looks at the causes of racism and it links today's migration
crisis to the darkest chapters of italy's history not have evil been made so for a long time i didn't realize how much italy's present or how much more europe's present is intertwined with the colonial past i didn't understand how incredibly to read the links worth between what we are experiencing. here in europe and i say that very deliberately and colonialism. that it puts people at the back of the total bail. out of. the writer spent 10 years researching a novel she was the subject of a documentary that accompanied her to ethiopia where she explored italy's colonial history and what was then known as abbotts siniora. fascist dictator benito mussolini invaded abba siniora in 1935 with dreams of creating a new roman empire. hundreds of thousands died as
a result of italian imperialism. fascist italy developed a race theories to justify its atrocities. but after the 2nd world war italy repressed its memory of the period. none of it for. the failure to face the past meant that this racism which is part of his history sank like a sub to raney and river. and since democracy's antibodies are no longer effective the guard and what was once impossible to say is no longer a political to boot it's now suddenly acceptable to say terrible things in public beach so racism has returned and is dominating public discourse. the legacy of italy's colonial era remains in her novel francesca melandri and diets italy's africa policies of the last 85 years and those who are turning the migration crisis
into political capital. in between even those after. it's used as a scapegoat to avoid talking about the real social problems in italy. there. is a massive economic crisis give us the high unemployment the terrible prospects for young people we need. european economic community was created in rome in 1957 this was the 1st step toward the european union a founding member italy is now one of europe's problems with its populist parties now campaigning against the e.u. we said they're not the government has poisoned the discourse in social interaction but i think. they got italy also has strong antibodies. the battle isn't over yet. no one
can predict what the outcome. german artists. studied communication design in new york but he found his best way of communication was actually via graphy. bt over the past 20 years he has developed his own distinctive style and also global concepts with graffiti in 2008 he created his 1st world peace will on the walls of a palace in northern iraq helped by local artists that more recently he's been traveling in africa with colleagues seen a gap to creating vast piece walls again with local artists so the results become a mixture of european and african styles. here in
pretoria south africa a german street art duo is way up in the air. usually on food and zena get out to aren't afraid of heights or carrying heavy machinery involved in their art. let me just go down a little here. on the facade of a former orphanage their latest mural is taking shape and bringing bright new colors to a city the artists barely even know. our idea is to travel to different countries and to try and figure out in a pretty short time what's going on here. this mural is their take on pretoria and it takes about a week to complete 30 degrees celsius in the shade it's a lot hotter here than what the pair are used to in germany but they keep going only taking a break when it starts to rain. another stop on their 3 month
africa tour the kenyan capital nairobi here they meet the artist and game while without whose work will provide motifs and stories for their next meal. european or african these artists are happy to take inspiration from each other. is not the it's not the exam that my grandparents and my parents left me i pick and choose what's good in different cultures so for me if something is coming from europe is great because up is going to become a cult if something coming from my land is great i'll pick it up if it's negative i'll take it out. the godown arts center in nairobi is the location for their next mural the kind of spray paint the artists used back in europe is hard to come by here so they use paint out of the bucket.
only stuff that he she might be positive on safin actually the biggest challenge is always finding the right wall i don't do illegal graffiti anymore not that it would be so easy to do something this big illegally anyway i mean given what that means is that you always need to get some kind of permission kind of in nairobi for instance you can't paint any living public figure if you can unless the person is a living athlete or a sports legend. uli on street art is visible around the globe from kurdistan to the suburbs of paris to nairobi. don't know how long their art will stay up and that's not the point street art isn't made to be permanent but using the photos they take union and zena paste their murals together digitally creating one long mural they call it the infinite peace walls.
