Giallo Cartesio - Venti anni di raccolta carta nella città di Torino

Giallo Cartesio - 20 years of waste paper collection in Turin
by Riccardo Jacopino 2015 25'

Combining 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.
