Ricardo Rousselot is a designer and calligrapher born in 1936, at "El Chaco", Argentina. After several years living and working in Chicago and a few more at Buenos Aires, he was seduced by Barcelona, the modernism, the sea, the mountains… And that was 38 years ago. This documentary talks about how ink as the path, never ends if it's full of passion and love. This is the story of a restless pen that travels between the purity of art and it's industrial application ... as bluesmen sing, "I've got calligraphy".

In spring 2008 me and calligrapher Francesca Biasetton decided to shoot this video to promote calligraphy and use it for showing different tools and writing styles for teaching.
Many things are changed from that time, but I'd like to share this video with you now.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
Calligraphers. Luca Barcellona, Francesca Biasetton
