  • 2016/ Polis / digital video 7’11”

    Polis is based on the Italo Calvino´s book, The Invisible cities. According to some interpretations of the book, the many different cities described in it, actually refers to the several different aspects of one single city. In the latin language a city could have been described as “Urbis” as well as “Polis” or “Civitas”, depending from which perspective has been consider. The video attempt to create a dialogue between a collage of images of Rome and some passages of the book and recreate the gaze of the visitor, coming into foreign unknown places, observing around and collecting informations to report to somebody else, as Marco Polo in the book.
