Somewhere in Paradise is a small short that represent some of the things that i love the most.
Shot last summer just behind my Grandmother's garden, the "place" where i go for real happy moments.
The Intro is the description of this beautiful place, from the Divina Commedia wrote by Dante who visited it in 1316 circa.
The poem is by Giacomo Leopardi, he wrote it in 1818 while watching the hills and sky of this very same region of Italy.
Voiced by Vittorio Gassman a great actor who had a voice like no other.
Hope you'll enjoy this short and that it could move you a bit... just like it did with me while working on it.
I won't add the exact location of this Paradise as the clues to find out where exactly is can be found inside the video. Put them together do a web search and you will discover a place made of high mountains, hills, and wild rivers...
