National premiere


Life and art come together in this fairy-tale documentary, set among the rooms of Rivara Castle, which the eclectic figure of Franz Paludetto, transformed in 1983 into a museum and residence for artists. And it is precisely a young artist who takes us through the layering of the events of this place and those who have passed through it. The result is a historical and intimate excavation, a journey into the very material of which images and memory are made.
