More about the project

The selected quote, as the book itself, reflects on the ability of Italian cinema to represent the everyday life of Italian people, rather than some abstract ideals. For this reason, the concept of the video revolves around the idea of giving life to the words, trying to reproduce a sense of breath and movement.

The animation follows a circular structure and is set in two main spaces, a black one and a white one. The music is composed of strings and harps. The resulting sound conveys the idea of something alive, awakening, breathing and moving.
