City Scripts takes form starting with a city, Palermo, made of space and time, and five narrators, three of which are single – Fulvio Abbate, Emma Dante and Giorgio Vasta – and two of which are plural, young people from twenty to twenty- five years of age, from Italy and Africa, who now live in the city. City Scripts is the description of five fragments of Palermo, five texts that will be made available as free podcasts, five ‘visions for listening’, five perceptions of the space of the city over time (past and future), five micro-narratives in which the wordscape mingles with the soundscape.
City Scripts is also a didactic itinerary which Manifesta 12 produces in collaboration with the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia – Sede Sicilia: made available to ten young authors, it becomes as an opportunity to think about the narration of physical space (with Giorgio Vasta), soundscape (with Pietro Bonanno and Fabio Lattuca, i.e. the project VacuaMoenia) and the audio documentary (with Letizia Gullo).
