Prezzemolo, sensa pile sensa curént elètrica

SANDRO GASTINELLI, MARZIA PELLEGRINO

Italy / 2008 / 52'

Mario Collino is a popular character from Piedmont, better known by the artistic name of “Prezzemolo” (Parsley). You can often meet him in the squares, busy with his “dumùre et na vira”, the games of former days. With Prezzemolo, all the popular wisdom of former days comes back through proverbial sayings nursery rhymes, sounds and stories. An endless series of objects and recycled material become play, meditation, example and enjoyment in his hands. It is not just a simple presentation of Prezzemolo’s performances in the squares and schools over almost all of Italy, but a true journey into his unique personality. We soon find out the deep humanity of this man, walking with him in the Cuneo Plain, at night in Valle Stura and on the hairpin bends leading up to Sant’Anna di Vinadio shrine at 2,000 metres, one of his most beloved and recurring pilgrimages.

Directors

SANDRO GASTINELLI

Sandro Gastinelli and Marzia Pellegrino have been married since 1991. In addition to their marriage they have also cultivated their passion for stories told through the images of the people in the Western Alps, where they live in the chestnut wood of Rosbella di Boves with their two children and only 3 other inhabitants. Their passion soon becomes their job, a continual research in the territory: in over ten years of activity they have shot about a dozen documentary and fictional films which have participated in some of the most renowned mountain film festivals, receiving several international awards in Trento, Cervinia, Les Diablerets and Autrans. In 2000 they “made up” the Rosbella Film Festenàl on their doorstep, “the smallest film festival in the world”. Since 2007 they have been artistic directors of the video-cinematographic section of Cuneo mountain festival. They participated in TrentoFilmfestival with Parla de Kyé (1997), Mari, monti e … gettoni d’oro (1999), Aiga d’en viage (2000), Arriverà il sole (2001) Pastres de Sambucanos (2002), Piròt, en fièt d’en bot (2003), A l’avirùn ed l’àibu (2003), Marghè marghìer (2005) and OSSignùr! La montagna assistita (2008).
