Montagna longa [video, 2018]
On August the 3rd 2017, a vast area in the territory of "Montagna Longa" - in Carini (PA) - goes up in flames. Part of the top of the mountain remains intact and this brings the artist to a resolve: he will film his walk in subjective to record both realities, with the camera pointing down and using the 0.255.0 filter. The screen, cut in two, shows two scenes at the time time: the devastation overlaps the nature that's still intact.The result is a fusion between the two parts, perfectly balanced and scanned by the rhythmic soundtrack - recorded by an American Navy band - with the purpose once again to normalise the tragedy and to water it down in an indistinctive green hypocrisy.
