The use of neon lights to give a luminous shape to the words and places of Ulysses highlights the vitality of Cavana, crystallises memories and brings new recollections to the surface, intertwining past, present and future.
#cavanastories sets out to be a container to collect the stories linked to Cavana and to the Old City which are at risk of being lost, a way to also recover the memories of those who no longer live in Trieste. The interviews collected during the summer and the autumn of 2019 have become a documentary called #CAVANASTORIES and constitute a first core of research which will be taken further in the years to come. The documentary, presented at the 31st edition of the Trieste Film Festival in 2020, has recently been purchased by RAI.
#cavanastories, besides an hashtag to post your pictures of Doublin’ and Cavana, is also an exhibition that twice a year – in June during Bloomsday and in December – celebrates the stories of Cavana and of its present and past inhabitants, with a series of events and dates in different streets and places of the neighbourhood.
