FLOWERS OF MY LIFE (FIORI DELLA MIA VITTA)
Performance based feature-length film, book and installation
2016 — 2018


Based on the true love story of Gian Paolo and his partner Evar, who died a quarter of a century ago. After Evar was killed in a motorcycle accident, Gian Paolo had to deal with his tragic loss. He collected all of the photographs of Evar, mementos such as pressed flowers, Evar’s notes and made a scrap book. Inspired by Gianpaolo’s recurring dream, in which Evar appears to him in a room full of people where only Gian Paolo could see him, Fiori Della Mia Vita is a poetic film that shifts back and forth in between reality and dream, past and present, as well as memory and imagination.
