I created Sulla Razza in April 2020, a podcast written and co-hosted with Nathasha Fernando and Maria Mancuso. It is powered by Juventus Football Club and produced by Undermedia. Extra content is available on Vice Italia.
Sulla Razza aims to translate into Italian words and expressions from the angloamerican culture, which we insist on applying to the Italian social context as well — for instance BAME, colourism and fair skin privilege. Sulla Razza is a conversation about race in Italy and it wants to provide non-white Italians with words to narrate their own experiences as minorities in the country. Words such as race, n-word or blackface have an impact on our lives.
