Sara Manisera


Freelance journalist. I was born on the night of the falling stars, my parents are both migrants, the children of farmers who themselves had migrated to Germany after the war. The Earth, sacrifice and family are my compass. I live in Beirut where I completed a Master’s in Mediterranean Studies and work as a freelance journalist for various international media organisations. I dream of returning to the Vallo di Diano to collect memories and folklore stories.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “To go slowly is to know a thousand variations of one’s way of life, the names of friends, colours and rain, games and vigils, confidences and slanders” (Franco Cassabile, Pensiero Meridiano)
