Many of the people involved in the project were designed by the artist and “animated”, thanks to Francesca Dainotto, in a three-dimensional white space. From this screen emerge and float the various characters: architects, dancers, technicians,writers, friends… and many children. The rhythm is offered by the soundtrack created by Invernomuto, and conceived as a sonic line that at times surfaces and at others withdraws like the drawings’ line.
