Western Algiers
Western Algiers | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanFor the last ten years, the whole world considered Algiers unvisitable because of the terrible violence taking place. Seen from within and despite a massive growth of population due to the mass exodus of Algerians from the excessively dangerous countryside, it seemed that nothing was changing in the city, as if time itself had been suspended. At the start of 2000, however, with the return to security, Algiers has shaken itself down and its inhabitants are witnessing important changes occurring in their urban landscape: bridges, tunnels, and link roads that connect the centre to the ring roads, are appearing everywhere. Meanwhile the old buildings of the city centre are being destroyed and brand-new residential blocks are growing up around the old city. Visiting this part of the city, with its frenzy of business - the new tempo of Algiers - tramples on the memory of a past that is both fresh and painful.

Italy: Mass Media, «veline» and spaghetti | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanThe Italian television fully reflects the country’s taste for transgression, abandoned principles, a vulgarity which knows no bounds, and the deeply rooted frenzied male chauvinism that prevent any changes to occur (however underlying) of which talented women could be the protagonists.

At times this exchange took the form of a give-and-take; at other times force or seduction were used, war or peaceful means. (????) (Spanish version)
