La raccolta (The harvest), 8'38

The video installation combines footage shot at the height of the government crisis in 2013 which lead Silvio Berlusconi to step down from his office. The images of a rich garden inToscana region, left there to rot away, represented a haunting metaphor of Italy after 20 years of his governance. The audio is the speech held by Berlusconi after the election victory in 1994, in which he promised to “take to the field”.
