archive material and current issues, the documentary tells the 20-year history
of the Cartesio Project, a waste paper collection project that went into
operation on 1 July 1995 thanks to the Cooperativa Sociale Arcobaleno di Torino:
past and present episodes in 20 years of door-to-door paper collection. The
story is told by the workers, managers, citizens, and friends of the Project,
as well as by young writers from the Scuola Holden and students of the Zerboni
Vocational School, Turin, who experienced Cartesio first hand.
