Her current work-in-progress is a plan to get acquainted with the social situation of Erasmus and Leonardo students as well as young immigrants in Italy through interviews, dialogs and visits in Genova and Torino this summer; as a result of which a self-edited booklet with articles and photos will be published (cf. her FB-page for crowdfunding this project through Ulule).
