Matteo Tacconi and Ignacio Coccia “Mare Corto”
With the participation of Barbara Gruden, Tg3 envoy for foreign affairs.
Mare Corto is a long-term project of Maria Coccia and Matteo Tacconi to talk about the Adriatic Sea using words, images and sounds truly and intensively.
The Adriatic Sea is a Mediterranean miniature: the coasts of Italy, of former Yugoslavia and of Albania talk to each other even though they don’t share a common language.
Nevertheless if we walk along the coasts we perceive something intangible and silent, something that is not rhetorically distorted, something that blends and mixes everything up, transforming the “mare corto” (short sea) into an intimate sea in which the peoples can mutually recognize.
