Una scena de Il filo dell'alleanza. Di Francesco Miccichè

Il Filo dell’Alleanza is the story of the realization of a work by Daniela Papadia, an artist who has embroidered six communities of women of different ethnicities, living in Israel and Palestine, a tapestry almost 6 meters long. The tapestry represents a map of the Mediterranean, drawn inside it by a graphic reconstruction of some blood genes, symbol of life, and bond not only of relational but also biological nature. Among the witnesses, the writer Abraham B. Yehoshua.

The director: “Daniela Papadia’s project immediately seemed like a ‘beautiful madness’. Putting Palestinian and Israeli women around the same table seemed like a utopia. But then the strength of the idea made possible the realization of the tapestry of the Thread of the Alliance and also of the documentary, an integral part of the work itself”.

Francesco Miccichè, has made numerous films including Compromessi Sposi, with Vincenzo Salemme and Diego Abatantuono, Ricchi di Fantasia with Sergio Castellitto and Sabrina Ferilli, Loro chi? with Edoardo Leo and Marco Giallini. Among the documentaries we remember Lino Miccichè, mio padre, Paolo Borsellino: Adesso tocca a me, e Io sono Libero, the story of Libero Grassi.
