Rome, November 12 - Fake soldiers armed with
weapons swarmed a press conference Monday to drive home to
journalists the plight of refugees.
The stunt, on the sidelines of the Rome Film Festival, was
designed to draw attention to the campaign "Routine is
Fantastic" promoted by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees
(UNHCR).
Actors from the Dell'Argine Theatre Company posed as
soldiers and refugees to draw attention to the campaign, which
includes testimonials from Italian actor and film director Ricky
Tognazzi, and comedian Dario Vergassola.
"We wanted to revive those moments to make it clear to
journalists in the room what it means to be a refugee," said
Laura Boldrini, a spokeswoman for the UNHCR in Italy.
