In November 2015, Tosatti starts to develop a project dedicated to the Jungle of Calais for the self-representation of a community to which we owe the foundation of a real city in the heart of Europe. Among the many declines of this project, the largest consisted of the construction of a rainbow 20 m high and 50 wide that would cross the entire city: symbol of regeneration and alliance.

The meeting goes through the various stages of the project, the history, the meetings with the migrants, a new stateless people now dispersed.
