Many of the people involved in the project were portrayed by the artist and “animated,” thanks to Francesca Dainotto, in a three-dimensional white space. The various characters emerge and float from the screen: architects, dancers, technicians, writers, friends… and many children. The rhythm is marked by the soundtrack created by Invernomuto, conceived as a sound line that at times emerges and at times recedes like the line of drawings.
