Locations

From the Alps to Sicily, Amate sponde displays a country with unique and often misunderstood landscapes, with a gaze turned to the city and suburban environments, to the world of work, contemporary meeting places and new and old collective rituals. A country that, despite everything, is in continual transformation, split by the contradictions of agitation and backwardness, of innovation and ancient conservatism. It is all displayed through music and images alone. No verbal comment, just a pure intertwining of vision and emotion, with very high-definition images from Sara Purgatorio and an evocative, dreamy and powerful soundtrack from Vittorio Cosma.

In considering notions of development and progress, Amate Sponde questions the present state of the relationship between Italians and their environment. The most recent figures suggest that - at an average of 19 hectares a day, the highest in the past decade and equal to a speed of over 2 m² a second - nearly 70 km² was covered in 2021, with cement now occupying 21,500 km² of Italy’s territory. The news periodically reports the dramatic consequences: the environment is becoming frail, at risk, desertified. It is not simply the proverbial beauty of our land at risk, however, but the actual identity of Italians as the historic expression of this environment.

It is for this, and no other, reason that the protection of our landscape is enshrined in Italy’s constitution. It is our right and our duty.

Plot
Italy. A survey of the entire shape of the country, looking at its essential lineaments, geo-physical and environmental, economic and productive, ranging from a social-demographic and residential perspective to the anthropological and cultural. The story of the country’s contemporary physiognomy is told in images and music, a domestic atlas of marvels that are often misunderstood and of places that are well known, beloved and often abandoned. And also of people’s lives, distilled in a highly stratified habitat, between the still- exploitable greatness of the past and the apparently static nature of the present. It shows a country marked by severe inequality and, despite that, in continuous transformation on the difficult path to sustainable development, suspended and imbalanced between old and new, while continuing an increasingly arduous search for an equilibrium to safeguard its spirit.
