About 4Stelle Hotel: www.4stellehotel.it
4Stelle Hotel is a web documentary that recounts a day in the life of the multiethnic community that occupied the abandoned luxury hotel on Via Prenestina in Rome and transformed it into their own home.
4Stelle Hotel is inhabited by around 500 people, comprising 30 different nationalities, who predominantly come from the Maghreb, the Horn of Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. They have been able to revitalize the hotel through shared re-activation of the rooms and communal spaces, according to a process of internal self-organization, including cleaning rotas and picket lines. Some of the occupants have lived in Italy for years; others have escaped from regimes, revolution and extreme poverty. All of them claim with dignity their right to a home and a better future.
