Private Project


Bianca d’Amore drives inspiration by a Giorgio Caproni’s poem about a small town in the south of Italy named “Martina Franca”. Bianca maybe is a real woman but we will never know,. She stands like a modern caryatid floating fast from a scene to another. The short movie has no a real plot but it speaks to the public through the power of images in a mysterious way, not trying to lead anywhere but letting the emotions arise from the sounds and scents in a synesthetic experience. A symbolic and sometimes mystic atmosphere. The only thing to do is to follow the thread.

Director Statement

BIANCA D’AMORE is an evocative short movie made out of whispers and magic acts.
It is the first short movie of twenty-one planned, one for each Italian region and all part of a big project called WOVEN CITIES. The aim is to get a dress, a textile artwork, a poem and a short movie for each Italian region in order to reach a whole visual project. It tries to weave society through art, opening heart and imagination. A body of work that talks about “genius loci”, memories and possibilities. The poem “Bianca d’Amore” has been woven by skilled weavers on very traditional loom and then put on a contemporary dress to create a contrast between past and present and maybe future.
