DISCOVERING VITRUVIUS FANUM FORTUNAE
Title Discovering Vitruvius
Genre History

Format 4K

Michele Mucciacito

Synopsis

Leonardo Da Vinci - the most brilliant scientist, painter, architect and writer of the Renaissance and Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, official of the genius, at the service of Julius Caesar and successively architect and engineer of the Emperor Octavian Augustus. Vitruvius developed the most ancient and important treatise on architecture, destined to become a reference model, the starting point for all research and all disciplines: arithmetic, geometry, drawing, acoustics, astronomy, optics, medicine, law, history, mythology, philosophy.

 

Who is Vitruvius and where does he come from? Tired of death and destruction, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio was summoned by Emperor Caesar Octavian Augustus, who proposed to him, at the end of his career, to reshape the political-administrative urban planning of the Roman colonies, especially in central-northern Italy. This meeting also occurred with the favor of Octavia, the emperor's elder half-sister, who seemed to have a particular interest in the writer. We suppose that this meeting took place on the outskirts of Fano (Fanum Fortunae), the Colony Julia Fanestris, as reported in a detailed passage of Vitruvius’ "De Architectura", where the - then old - Latin treatise writer recalls designing, conceiving and supervising the construction of a judicial basilica that has yet to be found.

 

The scientific investigation, in collaboration with the most important experts in the field such as Prof. Pierre Gros, Paolo Clini, Ingrid Rowland, Francesco Di Teodoro, Howard Burns, Mario Luni, lead us to increasingly believe that Marcus Vitruvius Pollio not only comes from Fano (Fanum Fortunae), but that he has also built, in addition to the judicial basilica, the Arch of Augustus, the town walls, the theatre and the forum of the city of Fortunae. And that it is also known that his treatise has influenced, in addition to the master Leonardo Da Vinci, the masters of Western world architecture, from the Renaissance to the present day: Raffaello Sanzio, Andrea Palladio, to name a few.

Synopsis

From a loss, comes the personal mobility proposal.
Today the road is dominated by cars, and in the street die more than 3000 people per year. Gambe tells how the street can also belong to disabled people, children, pedestrians and cyclists. The road belongs to everyone, starting with the weakest.
The film tells the events that took place one year after Michele’s death, until the birth of the Foundation dedicated to him. The emotions of those who lived close to him, the tales of the territory where he raised, of those who shared the Italian streets with him. But the movie goes beyond the story of a victim of road violence, even if excellent.
We will listen to those who have suffered the same violence, families of road victims, and we will also give voice to those who propose an alternative to reduce the road massacres. The film brings together the moving memory of a territory (as imagine of the whole Italy) that has lost one of its flags - a real modern hero - and the proposal of a mobility tailored on the fragile imagine of the road users: the disabled people, children, pedestrians and cyclists. We tell a vision of the road as “everyone’s space”, a world that focuses on the person, on the life.
During the story we will hear the testimonies of: Peter Sagan (three-times world champion and also a great friend of Michele), Roberto Mancini (coach of the national football team) Dario Cataldo, Enrico Gasparotto, Giacomo Nizzolo, Luca Paolini, Luis Maté, Simone Stortoni (professional cyclists), the national cycling team coach Davide Cassani, the journalist Marino Bartoletti, Alessandra De Stefano (RAI journalist), Philippe Brunel (Equipe journalist), representatives of the Traffic Police and relatives of victims of violence road like Stefano and
Stefania Guarnieri (Lorenzo Guarnieri Onlus), Marco Cavorso (representative ACCPI), Vittorio Saccinto (“Rose Bianche sull’asfalto”), Giulietta Pagliaccio (Fiab), Matteo Dondé (architect Bikenomist) Paolo Pinzuti (Bikenomist) , Marco Mazzei (urban cyclist from Milan), the children and parents of the Trecastelli school in Milan participating in the “Massa Marmocchi at school by bike” project, and many others.

Synopsis

The movie directors, Alessandro Tesei and Pierpaolo Mittica, joined a group of stalkers and penetrate in Chernobyl exclusion zone, filming one of the most incredible and adventurous trips ever made. It’s a romantic story of friendship and love for an ended world, a pure survival trip among soviet memories and wild and contaminated nature, and a loving tribute to the famous Tarkovskij ‘s movie “Stalker”, the Strugatzki brothers’ book “Roadside picnic”, and the videogame “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.”. Both authors are experts on issues related to radioactive contamination, and have produced over the years various video and photographic reportages in the most polluted areas of the world, including Fukushima, Kysthym, Magnitogorsk, Karabash. Historical partners and supporters of the Volunteer Association Mondo in Cammino, with which they produced the documentary “Fukushima no Daymio” and “Behind the Urals”, winners of several national and international awards.
There’s a new risky activity going on among Ukrainian youngsters: some of them in fact have recently started to illegally enter the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – in the centre of which there is the infamous Reactor 4 that exploded in 1986, making the area one of the most contaminated of the whole world.

They are referred to as “Stalkers” a name coming directly from Andrei Tarkovski’s film “Stalker”, a cult movie dated back in 1979 – and from a survival-horror videogame released in 2007 and set right into the Zone named S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Chernobyl’ Stalkers have developed a proper veneration for this specific area, which they consider it as a post-atomic private home. They are organized in paramilitary groups with names, symbols and rituals, while enjoying a dangerous trip to reach their final destination: the ghost town of Prypiat.
In order to get there, they have to walk about 60 kilometers through the woods – mostly by night to avoid the police patrolling – between nuclear radiations and wild animals. During their journey they usually sleep in abandoned villages, eat canned food and drink the water they find along the way, dirty and contaminated. The movie directors, Alessandro Tesei and Pierpaolo Mittica, joined a group of them and went illegally in Chernobyl exclusion zone, filming one of the most incredible and adventurous trips ever made.
The film is produced by the independent italian movie production company Subwaylab.
Thanks to this film you will see the Stalker, Prypiat and La Zona as you’ve never seen before.
