This Conference and the attached Exhibition originate within an Erasmus+ project of the European
Commission awarded in 2020 by a research team coordinated by Francesca Fauri of the University
of Bologna, with the help of the Punto Europa in Forlì. The research team also consists of Donatella
Strangio, Debora Mantovani, Eleonora Vlach, Vania Herédia, María Soledad Balsas, Paolo Galassi
and Fabio Casini. The project – titled “Past and Present Migration Challenges: What European and
American History Can Teach Us (PPM)” – has several objectives, including conducting
multidisciplinary research on migratory movements and comparing current and past challenges.
Thanks, in fact, to the comparison of past and present migration experiences and through a
multi-disciplinary approach that includes economic, political and sociological contributions from
both continents, this project aims to shed light on the complex nature of migratory movements and
use the past as a way to better understand current challenges.
The members of the Conference Scientific Committee are: Francesca Fauri (University of Bologna,
Italy), Debora Mantovani (University of Bologna, Italy), Donatella Strangio (Sapienza University,
Rome, Italy), Maria Soledad Balsas (CONICET, Universidad Nacional de La Matanza – UNLAM -
Argentina), Vania Herédia (Universidade de Caxias do Sul, Brazil) and Eleonora Vlach (Goethe
University, Frankfurt, Germany).
