Canadian writer Marcello Di Cintio began wondering about walls and their impact after a visit to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. And those questions led him to visit walls around the world, and writing the book “Walls – Travels Along the Barricades”
This week Di Cintio will be giving the closing remarks at the “Borders, Walls and Security” conference in Montreal organized by the Raoul Dandurand Chair at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) and the Association of Borderlands Studies.
RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Marcello Di Cintio about walls and the idea of the other.
