Manca Moro

Synopsis: Born to an Algerian father and a Sicilian mother in Tunisia, I have always been a child of three cultures. This motherland is where my Algerian ancestors were born when it was called Ifriqiya. It is also home to my Sicilian grandparents whose parents were part of the important migration flux of the beginning of the last century. A workforce by the thousands reached the shores of this “Promised Land”. A hundred years later, I embark on a quest to rediscover my Sicilian family, exiled for the past sixty years, scattered between Italy and France.
