Cosa vuoi fare da grande? BE LEGEND! è un progetto seriale, una docufiction a puntate che ripensa l’identikit infantile di alcuni personaggi storici o dell’immaginario divenuti leggenda. Ogni puntata un nome. Ogni città un bambino diverso che in ventiquattrore prova a incarnare una personalità eminente per come poteva essere a 10 anni: i gesti, l’ambiente, i giochi. Cerchiamo nel cucciolo le tracce del mito adulto o gliele mettiamo addosso, costruendo una sorta di profezia a ritroso.
Coming soon: BE LEGEND! Hamlet | Jeanne d’Arc | Hitler | ? | (to be continued…)

What would you like to be when you grow up? BE LEGEND! is a serial project, a docu-fiction series exploring how historical or fictional characters who are now legends may have been like as children. In each episode we look at different characters. In each city, a different child will have 24 hours to embody an eminent personality at the age of 10 - their gestures, their environment, their games. In the character’s younger self we will look out for those key traces that made him or her myths in their adult life, or we’ll simply impose these traits upon them as in a reverse prophecy.
