OSPITE DELLA II EDIZIONE
"... I felt a very strong emotion coming here, seeing this town restored.
I feel there is an emblem inside it, a very strong symbol; I am not able to analyze it, but it makes you become optimistic, although it is not easy to be optimistic today in Calabria ... There is an enormous richness. We must understand that this is not a rational job but it is a function of our spirit, even if we forget it sometimes..."

"I do not believe in objectivity, there is no need to invent what already exists.
In order to make a movie you must be professional, meaning you have to profess something.
Not necessarily a faith, but a vision of the world, indeed. A neutral eye is a lie, especially in my work, where all you have to do is move the camera a few inches and everything changes. "
Vittorio De Seta
