Artists who have roots in Ireland and beyond are the protagonists of the Contatto project, a portrait of Ireland’s creativity, a portrait that is not complete without these voices.


Elena Cristofanon is a creative based in Dublin since 2014.
With her studies in Art History, her work in the artistic and cultural sector and her experience as an expat human, she feels every bit of this project.
Resilience is her second name, evolving her main occupation.
Elena is the woman behind the cameras of Contatto.

Francesca La Morgia is a cultural and creative producer based in Dublin. Francesca’s background in linguistics and multilingualism draws her to all forms of creativity that allow for the full expression of individuals’ languages and identities. Her creative projects focus on using language as a tool to promote dialogue among individuals and communities and to activate social change. Francesca is the founder of Mother Tongues and the Mother Tongues Festival, the first multilingual festival in Ireland.
