INTRODUCTION
OVERLAP is a multi-year (2019-2024) multidisciplinary research project that investigates 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 multi-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).

- Exhibition of visual and performative art (2020 - 2024):
We All Are B is the exhibition inspired by the conceptual suggestions of Overlap's research. The exhibition is composed of a series of works of different languages including photos videos, installations, sculptures and performances. The works are located in different museums and art galleries. The exhibition is in collaboration with the COSMO-MED project and with the Tusitala cultural association.

- Video Documentaries (2020 - 2024):
Workshop documentaries with interviews with participants and scenes from the various activities. They will be projected in different national and international locations and included in the exhibition We All Are B.

- Dance show and performance(2020 - 2024):
Elaborated with some workshop participants including some foreign guests, presented in Sardinia (Porto Torres, Sassari, Alghero Cagliari), Italy, France, Norway and Lithuania. The shows born from the themes elaborated during the workshop and interpreted by some of the participants. The shows are in collaboration with CCNN / Center Chorégraphique National de Nantes (France), Living Theater (USA), Senza Confini Di Pelle (Sassari) and S'ALA (Sassari).

- Scientific articles and pubblications (2020 - 2024):
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. Some monographic pubblications will be produced.

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.

The three-year period 2022-2024 provides for the consolidation of the methodology, the search for new partners, the internationalization of research and the production of results.
