Island People – Lipari – Sara Basile

Lipari is a large and busy sicilian island (see Nanni Moretti’s movie Caro Diario, a masterpiece…). Before “knowing” Sara, in my imagination it was maybe the least interesting among the Aeolian Islands. After Sara and her volcanic enthusiasm, it suddenly seems the most alive!

Sara is a “picciotta” (sicilian for young girl), with a great passion for cinema, literature and the politics “of doing”! She lives in Lipari even in winter and organizes loads of cultural activities, despite some difficulties.
“It’s hard to implement the bases of a Community!!”, says she.
Se has been a political activist since she was 14, and she realized 3 short films with a friend which participated to the Salina Doc Fest (a short film festival that will be addressed here soon…) and at the Centro Studi Eoliano. Among other things, she currently proposes a film forum (last year dedicated to Federico Fellini, this year on the theme of the exile in the islands – #SenzaLimitieConfini).
She never stops!

See you late-April in Lipari, Sara!

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
