As part of Nel Frattempo Residency, Davide Serpetti re-examined his work-flow within “DREAM IS DESTINY/THE DUKE” in a much more experimental way, in order to deal with the transformation brought to our lives due to Covid-19. Left with no atelier and restricted tools, he discovered himself focusing more and more on the creative process rather than on the final opera.

“Italian director Marco Proserpio has been involved in film and television since the age of 20, when he started working at Mtv Italia. In 2018 he directed his first feature film, the documentary “The Man Who Stole Banksy”. Narrated by Iggy Pop and premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, the movie is co-produced with RAI Cinema and distributed worldwide. His most recent projects include a web series for the Museum of Louvre, the short film “Golden Age” and a series of 16mm shorts (see the instagram link below). The Quarantine redefines spaces, time and human relationships. 

It raises questions about our identity, the relationship with ourselves, our image and our role within society.

Identity passes through the recognition of the other and social affirmation. Who can we be? Who can we become? Who were we, what is our true identity? Who I am? Does who I meet determine it?”
