When I studied Design in Bolzano, one of the local retirement homes called Villa Serena asked the students of our faculty to produce some projects dedicated to its residents. This is the first of the two proposals that I realized for this occasion ( the second one is here) in collaboration with my brother Alexey Lapin and Enrica Zambonin.

Our project is a video where we enact some crucial historical events (related to WWII) in front of old people from Villa Serena. The purpose is to compare an to show the contrast between our interpretation of the history as it was transmitted to us at school and the testimony of true witnesses of those facts, that are the elderly people of Villa Serena.
