WHEN NEW YORK SAVED FLORENCE

Date:

WHEN NEW YORK SAVED FLORENCE

Screening of the documentary film Camminando sull’Acqua (Walking on Water), with the participation of Paolo Fantacci (son of Beppe Fantacci), Massimo Ferragamo, Richard Tayar and Laudomia Pucci. In Italian with English subtitles.

Produced and directed by Gianmarco D'Agostino, this docu-film describes the flood of November 4, 1966, through the eyes and the camera of Beppe Fantacci that, together with Emilio Pucci and Enzo Tayar, devised a plan to revive from the mud more than three hundred artisans’ companies, many of which are still active today.

The film narrates the story of the days of the flood and of the subsequent recovery, with first-hand witnesses from the Bargellini, Fantacci, Ferragamo, Pucci and Tayar families, and with impressive archival footage unpublished and entirely in color.

Gianmarco D'Agostino, director, producer and screenwriter, was born in Arezzo in 1977 and graduated in History and Criticism of Cinema at the University of Florence. Since 2001 he has written and directed several documentaries and communication campaigns, commissioned by public entities and banking foundations.
