Golden Wings

It’s not true that cities are deserted and the squares empty.
The statues are still there. And they have something to tell us.
The statues know how we will save ourselves from the coronavirus. With history.
Filmed by drone, it recounts 19 points of view of Milan making the statues speak: of San Francis asking God for help, of Alessandro Manzoni criticizing us for having forgotten him, of Leonardo Da Vinci questioning the silence of La Scala, of the Madonnina longing for the frenzy of Milan…
But Verdi suggests sternly: “go back to the ancient, it will be a progress”.
Golden Wings tells the beauty of a wounded, suspended Italy that seeks inspiration from its history.
