INTRODUCTION
OVERLAP is a three-year (2019-2021) multidisciplinary research project that inentigates the overlap of the migratory routes of birds and men.
Specifically, the routes connecting the Mediterranean sea with central Africa and northern Europe are taken into consideration.
From a first reading it can be seen how the maps developed by ISPRA (Institute of Environmental Research), used at the Fauna Observatory of the Asinara National Park where the routes of migratory birds between Africa and Europe are detected, coincide almost totally with the maps drawn up by Medu (Doctors for Human Rights) which show the routes of the people who move from Central African countries to Europe.
This coincidence reveals much more than a simple graphic overlay: it highlights a biological aspect of migration that completely goes beyond the political dimension.

THEMES OF THE RESEARCH
The project intends to examine the overlapping of the maps described above to deepen the relationship between Migration and Biodiversity, or how this relationship produces a mutual modification also based on the concept of Residence.
If, from a purely biological point of view, biodiversity is the formal richness of a species capable of creating a balance within an ecosystem thanks to the relationships they create, what relationship exists between the residential and migratory aspects of a given species?

OUTCOMES
The three-year project plans to produce the following results:

- Over trekking (1 June 2019 - Asinara):
The first result produced by the workshop is a performance event open to the public, an itinerant performance in the Asinara Park lasting about 2 hours with scientific interventions, dance, narration. The performance is created and interpreted by the working group (teachers and artists) including the workshop participants (refugees, asylum seekers, young people, students, performers).

- Photo exhibition and sound installation (2020):
Series of photographic shots by Rosy Giua and multimedia work by Margherita Riva. Inaugurated in Cagliari and replicated in Porto Torres, Sassari, Alghero, Nantes. The shots of the photographic exhibition will be included in the final catalog of the project. The exhibition is produced by the University of Cagliari in collaboration with the COSMO-MED project and with the Tusitala cultural association.

- Documentary video (2020):
Workshop documentary with interviews with participants and scenes from the various activities. It will be previewed in Porto Torres and in other national and international locations and to be visible on the project website. The documentary is produced by the Artistica Music & Show SCpa (Bra, CN).

- Dance show (2020):
Elaborated with some workshop participants including some foreign guests, presented in Sardinia (Porto Torres, Sassari, Alghero Cagliari), Italy, France, Norway and Lithuania. A show born from the themes elaborated during the workshop and interpreted by some of the participants. The show is produced by CCNN / Center Chorégraphique National de Nantes (France), Living Theater (USA), Senza Confini Di Pelle (Sassari) and S'ALA (Sassari).

- Scientific articles (2020):
Published in sector magazines and officially presented in Alghero, Cagliari, Sassari, Nantes, Vilnius, Oslo, Rosarno and Turin. The scientific results will be presented at the Universities of Sassari and Cagliari by the teachers Silvia Serreli (Department of Architecture, Design and Urban Planning), Raffaele Cattedra (Historical, Philosophical, Pedagogical and Psychological Sciences), through an inter-university conference. The project intends to present scientific results not only in academia but also in other locations with the support of the partner network.

PLAN
2019 is dedicated to the construction of the partner network, the creation of a multidisciplinary workshop to research thematic materials and the creation of moments of sharing some results in the form of a study with the public.

2020 is dedicated to the realization of the results in their complete form and to a first moment of sharing with the public.

2021 is dedicated to the dissemination of the results through the international partner network.

 

2019

1. Workshop (May 27 - June 1, 2019)
The multidisciplinary residential workshop at the Asinara Park lasts one week.
The workshop is held by a group of 11 scientists and artists from different disciplines: ornithology, architecture, geography, photography, dance, literature, theater.
The working group is composed as follows:

Cinzia Atzeni (Geography - University of Cagliari)
Raffaele Cattedra (Geography - University of Cagliari)
Elisa Ferrari (Dance - CCNN Nantes National Choreographic Center)
Gianluca Gaias (Geography - University of Cagliari)
Rosi Giua (Photography - Tusitala)
Dario La Stella (Performing art - Without Leather Borders)
Danilo Pisu (Ornithology - Center for Wildlife Studies)
Margherita Riva (Visual arts - Tusitala)
Silvia Serreli (Landscapes - University of Sassari)
Valentina Solinas (Dance - Without Leather Borders)
Tom Walker (Theater - Living Theater)

The working group is joined by a documentary filmmaker (Marco Iozzo), a musician (Antonio Baldinu), two representatives of the Gus of Sassari and 7 participants among refugees and asylum seekers from the local SPRARs, young people, university students, researchers, actors, dancers . The investigation theme is used as a starting point to elaborate the workshop contents through the direct involvement of the body, using observation as a privileged investigation tool.
The exchange of practices of different disciplines and individual experiences will be the methodology for research development.
The workshop will have Asinara island as its backdrop and will involve its participants for 8 hours a day, at different times and places on the island.

2. Performative, exhibition and scientific events (June - November 2019)

- Over trekking (1 June 2019 - Asinara):
