Ai Pioppi

20.10.2013

My friends at Fabrica (Writter: Luiz Romero, Dir. Photography: Coleman Guyon and Camara operator: Giacomo Pennicchi) asked me to create an image for the poster (designed by Vidit Narang) of their new short doc: Ai Pioppi. I shoot some still photo too; the place is amazing, the story is unbelievable and the piece really beautiful!

 

Hidden among the trees of an Italian forest, Bruno has been building swings, slides, seesaws, gyroscopes and roller-coasters for the last forty years. They are his passion and a way to attract clients to Ai Pioppi, the restaurant he runs with his family. Throughout this short documentary, his hand-powered toys move alongside his thoughts about existence and death; and why he spent more than half of his life creating rides.
