Riccardo presents "Due" (Two) at festival Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin.
"Due" was shot in Milano 2, a residential neighbourhood located just outside Milano.
Built as a utopian city between 1970 and 1979, Milano 2 was Silvio Berlusconi`s first ambitious project. It was in Milano 2 that TeleMilano, the first private Italian TV channel, started to broadcast, which made the area the bridgehead of the media and, later, political empire of Berlusconi.
Milano 2, which nowadays may seem an ordinary suburban area, has functioned as a laboratory for a form-of-life which spread nationally and left a long-lasting mark on Italian culture.
The film includes an interview with Enrico Hoffer, the architect that designed the landscaping of the neighbourhood, as well as fragments from a 1974 publicity brochure advertising the real estate project.
