Voci del Varietà

Italian actors' associations argued the inseparability of the "voice / face" against the practice of post-synchronization and against the use of street actors.
A completely meaningless slogan for Fellini.
In Fellini's films voices don't respect the movement of the characters mouths: words are not well synchronized with lips, and in many cases the script was changed during editing.

This video installation is part of a larger sound environment project in Castel Sismondo in Rimini (on the occasion of the conceptual proposal for the exhibition "Fellini 100. immortal genius")
