An afternoon love (first step)
«It is not a handbook: it will not tell you how to behave or what to do to run away from troubles or from the encumbrance of abandonment. It has no plot, except maybe the investigation of movements of love, just as movements». (Pier Vittorio Tondelli on Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments).
A basketball training that, behind the image of athleticism and competition, lets the eye perceive the world of relationships and intimacy existing among it. The relation between a man and his object has the same complexity of the one between two men? It looks like a fierce battle with the object but becomes the most persuasive of conquests; it assume the nuances of human life to return suddenly to be just a training: it is a duo choreography with just one man, who sketches the relationship in motion we always have one each other.
Alcune primavere cadono di’inverno departs from the observation of the movements of light objects moved from the air, as may happen to see during a windy day. An apparent language of gestures that – in its randomness – it is still able to give the suggestion of a willingness to communicate that can only be read from the outside. Putting alongside two bodies, a single object and a break-dancer, which although apparently indifferent but in the similarity of movements, seem to build the possibility of a dialogue between apparent randomness and control.
