  • The Italian animation shows the many souls of a country rich in culture, history and international relations. For several years now lots of Italian authors have started coproductions in different European countries, revitalizing themselves and renewing their style and content in an open dialogue, broadening their horizons. The title "Anime Italiane" refers then to a sensitive and expressive root that even if transplanted abroad flourishes with new sap.

    The selection of films represents the different technical and thematic approaches of each of the authors, who mostly do not originate from a specific animation school. Therefore these are all very different films and definitely authorial. Most of the films have an excellent soundtracks, composed by Demetrio Castellucci for Ekart and for Le nozze di Pollicino; Luca d'Alberto for Mercurio; Julia Kent for Dandelion; Zu band for Pandemonio.

    Memorie di Alba by Andrea Martignoni and Maria Steinmetz is based on Alba tellings on love story with her husband-to-be during the 50's in Bologna. Mauro Carraro realized his film 59 seconds about the earthquake in Friuli in 1976. More based on technical aspect is Ossa by Dario Imbrogno, a genuin virtuoso in stop motion. Destined to be dead by Francesco Rosso and Aperture by Emanuele Kabu was partly created as animated drawings, partly as live footage, exploring possibilities of representations expressed by animation and experimental cinema.
