Stefania Galegati Shines

The video (1 hour long, made of 7 little videos) is a rhythmic editing of the daily shooting of the last 2 years. Since 4 years Stefania is carrying a little camera with her always ready to shoot the craziest situations she runs into by chance, or just stealing a reality that becomes something else through the editing.
People working out, wedding pictures, collective myths, an elephant walking down the street, fat people eating huge sandwiches, rich people eating at the openings, the stadium, the baseball game, the Italian-American religious procession in east Harlem, jazz musicians, naked people on the beach, kids diving from a tall pole, "beachy fires" in Africa, old people walking, old people dancing, a horse carried by a vespa...

The 24th of January the video will be presented in different places all around the world. In each place people that Stefania met in the last years, are going to take care of it in many different ways, showing it in bars, galleries, restaurants or their own house.

Il 24 di gennaio il video sara' presentato in diversi posti in tutto il mondo. In ognuno, amici o conoscenti di Stefania se ne occuperanno in modi diversi, mostrandolo in bar, gallerie o a casa propria.


Il video (dalla durata di un'ora, fatto di 7 piccoli video) e' un montaggio ritmato del girato quotidiano degli ultimi due anni. Sono 4 anni che Stefania porta sempre una piccola videocamera con se', sempre pronta a girare le situazioni piu' folli incontrate per caso, o anche rubando realta' che si trasformano in qualcosa d'altro per mezzo del montaggio.
Ci sono persone che fanno ginnastica, foto di matrimoni, riti collettivi, un elefante che cammina per la strada, persone grasse che mangiano panini enormi, ricchi che mangiano agli opening, lo stadio, il baseball, la processione religiosa degli italo-americani a Harlem est, musicisti jazz, persone nude sulla spiaggia, bimbi che si tuffano da un palo altissimo, beachy fires  in Africa, vecchi che camminano, vecchi che ballano, un cavallo portato da una vespa...
