As per Christmas tradition, for the sixth consecutive year, in collaboration with my partner Mattia Bertoldi, we have produced a series of 3 mini-documentaries, “Get Together for Christmas," dedicated to emigration from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland for RSI - Swiss-Italian Television The three documentaries, each 15 minutes long and aired by "Il Quotidiano" a daily program on RSI, on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of December 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the quarantines caused by the Coronavirus, my usual "partner in crime" Mattia Bertoldi couldn't make the trip, but followed me via telework, so I relied on Manuela Cavalieri, who already works for several Italian publications including l'Espresso and Repubblica, for interviews and other help during the shoot.

Following the format created by the trio composed of Dario Bertoni, Sergio Locatelli and Enzo Regusci between the 1960’s and 1970’s, our camera captured the stories of six Ticinesi (Swiss-Italian), Nora Stevens, Daniele Pedrazzoli, Nadia Puttini, Aurelio Bolognesi, Pablo A Marca and Sabrina Muheim who chose to live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean between New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

For those interested to watch the Italian version of the 3 episodes aired on Swiss TV on December 23, 24 and 25 - 2020, here the links.
