About the project

We are in a moment to inevitably welcome and respect, of silence and transformation. After days of my total block I decided, after thinking about it a lot, to give life to this video project.

I wanted to involve people with whom I am or have been connected.

Through Skype calls I filmed the subject asking him to tell me some aspects of his life at this particular moment. I was very happy to hear that this initiative of mine gave strength to the people involved, for me the creation of value is fundamental at this moment.

What emerges from the stories is obviously uncertainty, silence, respect, but also hope and gratitude for life.
