“People are quite aware that some neighborhoods are gloomy and others pleasant.
But they generally simply assume that elegant streets cause a feeling of satisfaction
and that poor streets are depressing, and let it go at that.”

Guy Debord

The objective was to rediscover the city through its contradictions’ complexity, Suburban exploration have been recorded by means of a collective game. Every participant receive the invitation to pay attention to details, to focus on barren surroundings, distant from our usual habits. Building up our narration is not just collecting datas, is about opening a profound research, inducing viewers to develop a standpoint against shallowness of our time, and to search through the complexity of what is hidden.

Cena estiva sulle rive del Tevere

una barca abbandonata
“avete un accendino?”
un uomo con la pancia si allontana sotto un lampo, fuma
una sigaretta
cani
scooter
voce di bambino
“Portonaccio regna” (su un muro)
Maria, bel vestito
ragazze ridono, ridono ancora
passi sul brecciolino
passi veloci di gente che marcia
odori di :
rucola
alloro
arancio
100 m a ovest
“Cambia vita” (su un muro)
sigaretta
sirena, ambulanza
Uno scuolabus comprato nel 1998 e utilizzato a Cosenza
prima di finire in rottamazione
macchina che sfreccia
coppia di amici che parlano
Commento: “C’è tanto spazio vuoto a Roma”
