"Back to the future": progettualità di un'utopia attiva

Silvia Riva su Afrotopia di Felwine Sarr


Afrotopia is the name of a place not yet inhabited, the a-topos of an arriving Africa. In his recent book, Felwine Sarr writes a manifesto of the new African intelligentsia looking for unprecedented metaphors and imageries to realize the enormous potential of the continent at an economic, social, political and, above all, cultural level. Silvia Riva tries to show the importance and the poeticity of his project, which for once emphasizes the primacy of culture over the economy and over politics.
