An immersion into the archive reveals a submerged and hallucinatory world, Paper Maché, where human presence is suffocated by paper titans and demons. Shot in color between 1956 and 1967 with an 8mm camera by Bolognese cinematographer Alessandro Mantovani (complete film stock conserved by Home Movies and reedited by Mirco Santi), images from Viareggio Carnival are made to reemerge. From the imaginary potential of a bygone epoch that combined oneiric dimensions and traditions of the fairy tale, comes this live re-scripting which now involves the musicians Francesco Serra, Salvo Ridolfo e Michele Giovannini in the sonic interpretation of this startling carnival world.
