This chapter describes the international project Stories in Transit/Storie in transito, a storytelling project with young refugees developed and carried out in Palermo by the two authors with the contribution of several scholars, writers, poets, and artists from the United Kingdom, Italy and other countries. The chapter traces the ideas upon which the project is based, voicing the belief of the authors that the expression of culture is a fundamental human right which should be granted to anyone and that literature and orature constitute an immaterial form of shelter. The chapter then offers a short description of the events held in Oxford, Palermo, and London, from the first in May 2016 to the workshop in November 2017, stressing the active contribution of the young arrivants involved in the project and the results obtained so far.
