“La vita è un mistero insondabile e precario."
“Life is an unfathomable and precarious mystery.”
Alessandro, Danilo and Laura’s son, was born at the end of May 2017. The couple, both in art and in life, decides to film their child first year, from the birth to his first steps. The seasons follow one another with its emotional color and as the little Alessandro grows and transforms, Laura and Danilo become parents. But suddenly and as a glimpse into the lives of these people, the death of a family member imposes the time of silence and reflection: life is an unfathomable and precarious mystery.

With Nel mondo I intend to show in a delicate and direct way the physical and psychological transformations that break into a family when a child is born and a family member disappears prematurely. When I started this project I didn't know what would happen but I felt a strong need to make the autobiographical approach coexist in my expressive and human path with the need to deal with universal aspects of human nature, such as life and death. The birth of my son and the death of my brother were very intense and complicated events, which gave me the opportunity, on the one hand to reflect on myself and on the other to make a film that represents a radical gesture of truth and of poetry towards the viewer.
