The documentary, through testimonies, archival documents and animations, leads the spectator to discover the fascinating story of the Tabarchine people during centuries of wanderings across the Mediterranean. The story begins in Pegli in 1600 when a group of Ligurians left for Tabarka in Tunisia for commercial reasons; then continues to Carloforte, Calasetta (Italy) and Nueva Tabarca (Spain) from the 19th century to the present day. They come therefore tell the adventures of a people who can be considered an emblem of cultural mixes, migrations, connections with other Mediterranean populations and at the same time tenacious in preserving their roots and their culture. The documentary was created specifically for the Ràixe-Digital Spaces for Culture museum Tabarchina, which was inaugurated in 2019 in Calasetta.
