Italy, 2021, 60'
A fresco of the people who live and revolve around the former Sabatia tannery in Milan, 15 minutes away from the Duomo. A post-industrial space of interaction and integration of people from different countries, constantly moving in different trajectories and speeds. It's a narrative that does not follow a linear chronology, but observes the various combinations between the place and the people who inhabit it. The editing mixes stories on various levels, the direction, rhythm and sense are suggested through the shooting and not by a pre-established narrative. Poetic and surreal visions with a touch of magic compose a live commentary of life.
“I’ve been living here since August 2002 and my point of view is certainly privileged: sharing this space and participating in its social life on a daily basis has allowed me to collect transformations and poetic visions”.
This place seems to be remote from the city center, but can be quickly reached along the straight line of the Naviglio, one of the city’s canals.
