Ponte Vecchio, Florence.
Project conceived for a movie Premiere: Inferno with Tom Hanks.
Storyboard: a demon from Botticelli's map painting of Hell emerges from the middle of the waters of the Arno river, spitting flames of fire towards the Ponte Vecchio which, after several attempts, catches fire completely. The poster of the film is projected on the buildings of the same bridge, with the image of the various symbols of the film, towards which the head of the demon is oriented, from time to time, and of Prof. Langdon in the foreground (Tom Hanks).
Proposal conceived with Massimo Tonon from Genova.
Some years after the concept we already prepared an article about history of perspective, see last image, of the Renaissance in Florence.
