For a Zooppa contest about “the art of making” in Milan, I realized two different videos.

“Dario, the artist who works as a mechanic” is about Dario Cerquoni, an old mechanic from Southern Italy who came to the city in the 70s and started his own activity after realizing how many cars there were! And now he has thousands of clients from all around Milan because of his expertise and because of his extraordinary creativity and fantasy.

“The long life of beautiful things” is about Mauro Bracciali and his Carrozzeria 900, a space in Via Padova where he collects, restore and sell design objects from the 30s to the 60s. Mauro speaks about the importance of design as cooperation, a process leading to great and quality objects that deserve to stay alive.
