Permanent Strangers: What is life like for a migrant living in a new city?

What is life like for a migrant living in a new city? What are the stereotypes and conflicts that they have to deal with and how do they express this in their literature? Actor Kabir Bedi and Swiss Italian poet Oliver Scharpf answer the questions. Laila Wadia chairs the panel discussion.

Kabir Bedi is an Indian television and film actor. His career has spanned three continents including India, the United States and many European countries in three media: film, television and theatre.

Born in Lugano, Oliver Scharpf is a Swiss author who writes in Italian. Scharpf won the prestigious Premio Montale for an unpublished collection, then released by Mobydick with the title Uppercuts. Premio Città dell'Aquila and the Premio Schiller soon followed. In 2007 Pequod published Scharpf 's second collection, La durata del viaggio dell'oliva dal martinicocktail and in 2010 Capelli published Lo chalet e altri miti svizzeri.

Laila Wadia is an Indian writer and translator who has lived in Italy for over 25 years. In Italy she published: Mondo pentola (Iannone 2007) Amiche per la pelle (E/O 2009) Come diventare italiani in 24 ore (Barbera 2010). Her fiction deals with multi-cultural themes and women's issues.
