Videoconference "From Italy to Kenya with love" with Sofia de Dominicis | In Italian. As part of "The Magic Box"




This month, the guest of La Scatola Magica is Sofia de Dominicis. Sofia is an old friend of Malta and The Magic Box and will tell us about Giacomogiacomo onlus. It is a non-profit association founded in 2006 by Paola Tomasini, mother of Giacomo who tragically died at the age of 7. The association’s goal is to promote human dignity and overcome cultural barriers by supporting projects for the education and training of disadvantaged young people living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Sofia comes from a family of lawyers, publishers and sailors. The first time she saw Malta was at the end of a long voyage on her father's boat, called “Porto Ercole”. The Grand Harbour and Valletta walls literally fascinated her!!! She has often been involved in travelling, out of passion and work, and has lived in Iran, Belgium, the United States, Israel and Malta.

She has always been interested in politics and its social aspects, working for voluntary associations since she was very young. This is also how her African adventure with Giacomogiacomo onlus started.

This presentation will be streamed online (in Italian). For further information please contact: by 13th December in order to take part in the event.
