Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of Western Civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers and kings. Preserved like a Roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to reconnect with his Tuscan family roots.
Del Moro’s journey is a coming of age story painted against the beauty and tradition of modern italy. In a time of personal exploration, Chris is enlightened by his experiences on the-road-less-traveled through passionate friends and family dedicated to the things they love, revealing a greater truth about the simple blessings in life.
Filmmaker Jason Baffa chronicles Del Moro’s surf-travels with companions, Maggi Orli, Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lyndsey Hill, Conner & Parker Coffin and Italian stand-outs Alessandro Ponzanell and Leonardo Fioravanti.
A visual epic captured in stunning 35mm, Bella Vita is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, seeped in culture, tradition, and passion- where family comes first.
