7 Themes for the Peri-Urban Landscape in Umbria

Giada Fuccelli
Italy | 2021 | 2’21 | International preview

This is an exploration of the Umbrian landscape that is both dreamlike and tangible reality, in a region that has been defined as the “green heart of Italy”, but which conceals like other Italian landscapes, its own contradictions and ambiguity. Here we are in Umbria, in the middle of the Italian peninsula, and a child is running swiftly through a luscious green landscape, with a strip of blue sky overhead. While running the child suddenly takes flight and acquires a bird’s eye view, giving us the opportunity to observe the Umbrian landscape from above. The child who is now an adult will always try to return to nature, becoming themselves, a unique and intrinsic part of the landscape.
