Angelo Turetta, ‘L'amore ritorna’, 2003, ILEX Gallery

From the movie "L’amore ritorna"- directed by Sergio Rubini, 2003.
"The waiting times in movies are sometimes the most interesting moments for me, lights move and create unexpected landscapes, actors waiting for the next action in strange places, technicians and electricians moving fast on the set with staircases, cables, reflectors, tripods, polystyrene, cloth tapes, rails and technical pieces. It was during one of these moments that "Cettina" appeared to me.
She, who also appears in the film, was perched on the edge of a chair waiting for her scene. I noticed her while I was dazzled by a spotlight pointed in the aseptic room of a hospital."
