1-26 April, 2011. Dedicated to the Rom culture, this multimedia exhibition comprises photographs from the 1930s and 1960s-1970s and the screening of a biographical documentary on gypsy life titled Weaving Two Worlds by Belgian Jan Yoors. In 1934, 12-year-old Yoors befriended a group of Rom children near his home in Antwerp. He soon began living with them and spent six months in their company as they travelled through Turkey, Poland, Germany, France, Spain, Yugoslavia, Romania and Hungary. The Rom community in Rome has received much media coverage in recent times due to the tragic fire at Tor Fiscale in February resulting in the deaths of four Rom children.
