Dedica for University


Meeting with Paolo Rumiz
conducted by Andrea Zannini

Paolo Rumiz is a great traveller of our times because his routes are never driven by the desire for exoticism, but by the need to get to know that which is different.
«I try to find traces of my roots in the places I visit, to catch a glimpse of the faces of my forefathers in the people I meet. Borders are like a man’s skin, they separate us from others but they also put us in contact with them».
