Va pensiero is the crossed story of two racist attacks in Milan and Florence and the complicated reconstruction of the fragments of life of survivors.
Milan: Mohamed Ba, a Senegalese griot, actor and educator who has been resident in Italy for 14 years, is stabbed on May 31, 2009, in broad daylight, in the center of Milan. Florence: Mor and Cheikh, also immigrants from Senegal and resident in Florence, are thumped on December 13, 2011, when they are working at the market of San Lorenzo.
