When only the name and surname of a person remain and their whole life implodes in that Angioletta Nerina or Iolanda Benvenuti or in the registry sign of sixteen other young women, time needs bodies.

Of those eighteen girls who experienced the war with body and suffering, and partisans fought against that, occorre ridare immagine e somiglianza.

Words spoken by faces of today, young girls born between 1926 and the 1937, da nove a diciannove anni ciascuna nelle sembianze di altri visi coetanei, contemporaries as they traveled from then to now.
Words of today but as they were said then, day by day, from image to image without knowing which one was the real one. Imagoturgy of time, from name and surname only to faces that are all different, virtual but in real memory of lives lived, not behind but inside that name and surname.

The documentary image, the visual painting, i dialoghi veri e immaginati sono ciò che rimane affinché il tempo continui il suo giro a ellisse e, restoring body and voice, everything doesn't go back to the same as before. Revolutionary motion, like the Earth around the Sun, chorale of Memory and the present.
