The past history of five locations in Milan, narrated by means of images from the film ‘Rocco And His Brothers’ (1960) by Luchino Visconti, encounters the present of the same locations, illustrated by means of audio field recordings made in those places at the beginning of 2010.
The result is, from time to time, a dialogue or a clash, narrating the urbanistic and the social transformations of the city across fifty years.
