“E poi c’è Napoli” – World première

 

Pitti Immagine and Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana introducing the première showing of “E poi c’è Napoli” at the Cinema Teatro Odeon, at 6:00 p.m., on 19 June, with a second showing at 9:00 p.m.

Directed by Gianluca Migliarotti, “E poi c’è Napoli” [And then there is Naples] is a journey through Neapolitan traditions and culture, that avoids the pitfalls and clichés of “postcard Naples”.
A story which, from an unusual standpoint, is also a tribute to a look that has become synonymous with masculine elegance everywhere. Images, dialogues, emotions, and personal stories present the city’s genuine atmosphere and colors that are too often hidden by the folkloristic images that have spread around the world.

The film presents a view of Naples from the sea – a view from a boat, a truly different vantage point – and guides the audience on a discovery tour of the tufo grottoes and the marvelous architecture of the Posillipo district that cannot be seen from the street. “Stolen” glimpses of daily life reveal stories of small, outstanding makers along with the rituals and customs so closely linked to a certain way of being, dressing and working.

The tour is guided by some of the greatest names in Neapolitan culture, fashion, art, and film such as Raffaele La Capria, whose work was the inspiration for the entire concept of the film, and then Salvatore Ambrosi, Davide de Blasio of Tramontano, Hugo Jacomet, Maurizio Marinella of E.Marinella, Ciro and Maria Giovanna Paone di Kiton, Annalisa Calabrese of Calabrese dal 1924, Massimiliano and Giuseppe Attolini of Cesare Attolini, Gianluca and Enrico Isaia of Isaia, Mario Portolano and his sons, Salvatore Piccolo, Antonio Panico and Gennaro Formosa.
And the images themselves will present entrepreneurs and young craftsmen: thoughts, stories and gestures – symbolic testimonies of skills that can indeed be handed down to future generations with talent and dedication.

SYNOPSIS

Barcelona, 2012: XC is one of the many Spanish cornered by the economical crisis: prices go up, rents are impossible to afford. There’s a son that lives with his mother in Madrid and that needs to be supported; XC’s future is increasingly uncertain. The need to find an alternative to the unbearable economical situation and the rediscovery of an old postcard, convince him to start on a journey. Everything he owns is packed into his old car… long, straight roads, blinding landscapes and small dry bushes are the only partners of his journey. It’s right here, in these spanish deserted landscapes, that he accidentally meets a kind and simple man of the coutryside: Josè Martin. XC’s car broke down and he cannot continue his journey, unless he finds the money to repair it. José and his family, unlike the other inhabitants of the town, offer hospitality to the traveller, welcoming him into a secret Spanish Eden. Resolution, Perseverance, Courage and Love are Josè’s characteristics that XC picks up and chooses to embrace to continue his journey with new strength.

El Somni @ 65 Berlinale

The film El Somni is a journey through the world of ideas, creativity and thoughts. It aims to break the boundaries between artistic disciplines, between space and ideas to create a marriage of opera and cuisine. Art and thought are the twin engines of this project which offers the experience of a dinner which never existed, of an unbelievable film, of the birth of new tools for creativity, all bearing the name of Barcelona. This is the adventure of the marriage between cooking and art in the service of thought and emotion. The plot moves through the same 12 concepts which define the libretto of the opera, providing details and a new dimension to the story line.
El Celler de Can Roca, world leader in gastronomic excellence, and Franc Aleu, a key innovator in the aesthetics of contemporary opera, invite us to enjoy a new experience: the marriage between gastronomy and the universe of opera with a fascinating, multi-format, and unique experience in which renowned representatives in various fields of science and culture participate, establishing a harmony that will transcend the boundaries of their respective disciplines in order to generate emotions.

Driving Dreams – Prelude

 

 

 

The Driving Dreams Team is scouting the prestigious Monza Circuit for the first shooting session. Follow this new story!

Franc Aleu and El Celler de Can Roca lead us to the GastrÒpera “El somni”

An Opera about the cyclic journey of human existence. A spectacular journey through the sense!

The image, the art, the music, the taste and smell, are united in a cross-media work piece: an opera-dinner about the cyclical journey of human existence.

A dream through twelve emotions that takes us to the table where the dinner will be held, where the kitchen and video creation are transformed into a new artistic experience.

A reference piece of art and cuisine that breaks the boundaries of creation themselves to offer a total perception of beauty.

El somni is the result of a cross-media creation because it takes several forms: the dining experience ever lived the making of a film, the conception of two exhibitions and the publishing of a book. All these different media explain the process of creation and adventure of this union between arts and kitchen at the service of thought.
