“You told me tales of Love and Glory…”
“Castles out of fairy tales…”
“River, oh River have mercy…”
“…Take me down to the sea…”
“…Old Man River is so shy…”
“…puzzling over lipstick traces…”
“…I’m drowning in your troubled eyes…”
“…’cause if I’ll perish on these rocks…”
“…it’s you I’ll see, not Lorelei…”

In 1995 I visited a collective art exhibition in Berlin, invited by David Krippendorff. The artists had filled a box with thousands of seamless snapshots. You were invited to choose and take away as many you liked.

44” animation. Maybe a little depressing, but I like the soundtrack.
I used to send to my mailing list an incoherent message ending with the link VIRUS.EXE. Most people deleted the message, others replied alarmistically, few of them understood the joke and clicked in.

I dreamt of this little girl, and in the dream I remembered about this girl I played with, and I told it to the others, friends, parents, but they could not remember, no way!..
So I searched for proofs, pictures, witnesses, but there were none, as if the little girl had never existed…
But inside the dream the answer was revealed to me: that girl had really existed, because I was that girl, me in another possible life, me a second before being generated…

In late 2000 I was contacted by Rachel Bellinsky, vocalist of Switchyard, a band from Las Vegas. She proposed me to elaborate a Flash animation starting from one of their songs. Finally it’s done! The song is beautiful, you can download both Lo-Fi (732k) and Hi-Fi (4.5M) versions.

This section is dedicated to some of my juvenile “analogic” works (most of them unfinished). A dark atmosphere prevails (we are just in the middle of the eighties), war is omnipresent, along with rigid weather, solitude and hibernation. That’s what I call Zeitgeist!
1 – Frozen Blood: I’ve always been struck by the odissey of the carton booted Italian soldiers marooned on the russian front: chilled witnesses of our homeland totalitarianism. Here Soviet anti-tank in action.
2 – Soviet of the Soldiers: Red stars on a foreign planet. The troop argues with the commander. Here I was sketching a vehicle.
3 – Tulani Siege: Another ambitious project: a sort of planetarian Stalingrad described in depht. Here a flag is raised over the ruins.
4- Tulani Siege 2: An inertial bullet shaped module approaches a battleship. Swarming Space Marines prepare to assault.
5 – Feuersturm 1886: A steam-powered vehicle raises from a discharge. A military nightmare of the XIX century.
6 – Vertical Infantry (Huntermouse): The theme of the Eternal War. Strategies to conquer the galaxy lacking Warp speed.
7 – Madison: Peace on Earth in 2101. An hibernating astronaut struggles against solitude.
8 – Earth Micro Defenders: An everlasting obsession: War in the Microcosmos. Here the main character, Irios/Madison/Omicron as I named him during the years.
