artists: Fabrizio Virgili and Fabia Binci

The Group of inmates who experienced creative writing & Haiku poetry sessions with Cascina Macondo, interacted with Fabia Binci & Fabrizio Virgili, two prominent Haiku poets respectively from Genoa and Rome, Italy. They both hold a "keynote" on different days. The amateur experience with Haiku poetry within the walls of Saluzzo and Torino prison was exposed to professional expertise of Haiku art and shared with a large group of co-inmates. The ideal setting to connect people from within the prison with people from outside in order to give more appetite to practice Haiku poetry. The ultimate result was to make Haiku art thrive in Saluzzo and Torino prison connecting people beyond walls, beyond borders.
