Conceived out of the experience of the Lecture on "Violence Against Women" held by the Philosophy Department of the University of Bologna, Di genere umano poetically mixes voices and faces of intellectuals, students and citizens with old tapes, footage of the city, children dialogues. A concert of points of view that reaches the heart.
