A joint initiative of the Italian Embassy in Prishtina and Kosovo’s Ministry of Culture, in cooperation with the Kosovo Agency for Development brought smiles back to the faces of children of the Roma and Ashkali camp in the Mitrovica region, making it possible for them to attend the circus performance, probably for the first time in their lives, in the capital Prishtina. Children had the opportunity to enjoy animal choreography and acrobatic performances of the Italian Circus “Embellriva”, who is on a 20 day visit in the city. The circus came back to Kosovo for the first time since the 80’s thus bringing joy back to those who know what the colorful tents are all about as well as for those who experience it for the first time.
The Italian Ambassador in Kosovo Michael Giffon and Kosovo Minister of Culture Valton Beqiri expressed their satisfaction for being able to make the children happy through this initiative and to aid them in forgetting the hardship of their life in isolation at least for a day. At the same time, officials expressed their belief that this act is a step forward to the youngsters’ integration in the Kosovo society.The show was attended by over 200 children of these communities.
