Digital Diary Liguria – Celestium

I’m from Toronto, Canada. I’ve travelled all over my home country and the rest of North America with my family and friends. Getting to travel to Italy for The Digital Diary Liguria was like experiencing multiple trips of a lifetime at once. I was overwhelmed by the people, scenery and food. Italy is home. What […]

I grew up in Episcopia, a village in Lucania that I left at the age of eighteen to study in different European cities. Today I live in Paris where I work as a designer, but every time I go back to Italy I want the experience to be unforgettable and I do everything I can […]

Digital Diary Liguria – A Dream about Genova

I was born in 1981 in Extremadura and I’ve been living in Madrid for 7 years, where I work as film-maker with Antonello Novellino. I was nervous during the days before the selection of Digital Diary Liguria 2013. Then, I received the e-mail. It was an e-mail with a picture in black and white of […]

The office in Manarola

I’m in front of the office window, in Manarola. There is a still sea, just whitened by a light gust of wind, clear in colour, and on the horizon you can see a half sun balanced on the skyline. On the right, in the background, the point heading towards the sky of Monviso, and to […]

Tour of the historic shops

Tiziana and I exchange a conspiratorial glance, we sigh almost in unison and shaking our heads with happy resignation we say: “Genoa really is always beautiful”, then she adds: In moments like this I can’t help but think about how I really do live in the most special city in the world These are some […]

Digital Diary Liguria – The Adventure

There’s an Italian, a Frenchman and a Spaniard… nooooo, I’m not telling you a joke, this is what the ‘Liguria Digital Diary’ was like. We chose, from 80 video makers, 10 young people from all over the world. Let’s get to know them: first three Italians who now live abroad: @Angelo (Paris), @Filippo (Sydney) and […]

Cinque Terre born again

25th October 2011: Tourism and upkeep of the area. The images you have seen over the past few days mix feelings and time. They are the same, even if fortunately with less terrible consequences, than those we saw a few years ago in the Cinque Terre and nearby Valle del Vara. They are images of […]

Cinque Terre: joy and emotion

Cinque Terre is synonymous with joy and emotion. Excursions by land and sea allow you to enter the territory. I swim the confines of this area, where the waves flow in continuous dialogue with the rocks. Sometimes a bit of foam, sometimes so still they seem asleep. I swim and watch, the confines are not […]
