An Argentine sculptor, a town in Southern Lebanon 12 kms from the border with Israel, and the materialization of a unique monument. Aghast by the striking images of the Israeli bombardment upon Qana’s inhabitants in 1996 and 2006 Ricardo Longhini departs Buenos Aires strongly determined to create a work of art in situ in homage to the victims. In order to achieve his goal he will need the townspeople’s participation. What ties an Argentine sculptor with the people of a Lebanese town together?
