Panorama / Places


A servant embarks on a journey that takes him from Mount Vesuvius to the actual Campania to honor the last wishes of pastor Tommaso. His mission is to save a young buffalo in the ancient royal palace of Carditelo.

Lost and Beautiful begins with a POV shot with an estranged visual texture. The shot shows a beautiful buffalo. Later, a mid-range shot on a painting that features masked people echoes a typical 18th century stage play. Who are these men? One of the characters is called Pulcinella, and it’s related to the commedia dell’arte. In a ministry with no name, an enigmatic permission is requested: to give the buffalo called Sarchiapone the gift of speech. There’s a third fundamental character: Tomasso Cestrone, a man who once decided to take care of an abandoned palace, a synonym of a splendorous time in Italy that is now a buried memory. These symbolic elements are at stake and working as an allegory of the Original sin, while also articulating a discreet and aimless rage against the indifference of the powerful in contemporary Italy.
