This year’s CID Video Competition has as its theme listening, on the grounds that listening is how intercultural dialogue starts. In these days of the Coronavirus pandemic, a very different video on listening has been circulating. Despite the fact that it has no other connection to the competition, it is well worth watching. It is titled #Ascolta in the original Italian, and An imagined letter from COVID-19 to humans in the English. Perhaps it will give ideas to those who are preparing videos for the CID competition.
