Looking for pain

The video clip, apart from the singer, features the young Bolognese actress Alessandra Nardella. The idea behind the video comes from the very atmosphere of the song, which is melancholy and focuses on feelings related to inner restlessness; the visual metaphor rests on both everyday places, an apartment but semi-bare and aseptic, and more anomalous, such as abandoned, ruined, gray and faded rooms, as if to recall a moment of inner chaos, during which this search ("looking for pain ") has no precise direction and is confusing. Perhaps, at the end of the video, the doubt will remain, not productive.
