Directed by : Sigfrido Giammona.

Actor: Igor Petrotto.
Description of the project:
This mobile short film was made during the Covid-19 quarantine period.
Through today's technology, the screenwriter organized the script and the monologue, which then passed into the hands of the director, who organized the storyboard of the shooting and directed the actor remotely, then edited after receiving the files. The actor self-filmed and organized the make-up and scenography of the work independently.
The courageous aspect lies in the remote management of the project, the agreement between the three artists who worked on it, as well as in the difficulties in making a short film without the possibility of being together in the same location.
A street actor has been locked in his apartment for over a month in complete solitude. Looking out the window, he feels nostalgic for his city, and for the places he has always frequented for work and affection. He realizes, day after day, how his city is no longer the same. It has changed suddenly under the quarantine lockdown caused by the Covid-19 virus.
Un attore di strada è chiuso, in completa solitudine, nel suo appartamento da più di un mese. Guardando fuori dalla finestra sente nostalgia della sua città, dei luoghi che ha sempre frequentato per lavoro e per affetto, e si accorge, giorno dopo giorno, di come la sua città non sia più la stessa. È improvvisamente cambiata a causa dello stato di quarantena causato dal virus Covid – 19.
