Italia: Where WOW Belongs
Director: Simone Menin, Fabio Reitano, Giuseppe Lombardi, Filippo Golin
Producer: Wow Tapes
This video is almost a self-portait: product of the blood, sweat and tears (of joy!) of 4 thoroughly and truly Italian shutterbugs on an overwhelming journey into the heart of their country's beauty. We wanted to hop into our camper and take off to create a representation of how we see our beloved Italia with all her unparalleled beauty gravitating around food (lots of it!) and a beautiful mess of people. But we could never have imagined how difficult the execution of this idea was going to be. Over 5000kms through Italy made us fall in love all over again.
This video was truly a dream project for many years. But now that it's done, we see why we waited so long. There was too much beauty, too much love, too much heart and very simply put, it was too hard to process. Deciding on a route and at least a loose itinerary was unimaginably complex. But we finally left with a list of 500 magnificent spots to visit and film. We travelled hundreds of kilometers everyday under the most perfect weather only to be stunned by what we saw every single time.
