The 4 min. video, entitled “Profondo sospiro dell’uccello dalle piume di velluto grigio”, has been made in the premises of the Luigi Chiarini Library, involving staff, students and teachers of the Centro sperimentale di cinematografia. Fabio Rosi (subject and director), Nicola Nocella (protagonist), the producer Gianluca Arcopinto (librarian) are ex-students of the center. The lights, filming and editing have been made by Renato Pezzella, teacher of the CSC.
The protagonist, Frank Nocella, arrives at the Library after having booked, through the BiblioChiarini App, a volume about Dario Argento filmography. Through the book, and his smartphone, Frank magically enters into communication with the protagonists, precisely in the moments of the film in which a crime is about to be committed. After several phone calls, in an atmosphere of great suspense and tension, he will finally save a character. In the clip the music of the Goblins of Profondo rosso are recognizable and the lights used are inspired by the work of Luciano Tovoli in Suspiria. In one scene the protagonist is enraptured by the image of Alida Valli (reference to the film Suspiria, of which the actress was an interpreter) posted on the stairs of the Library. The films mentioned in the clip are: Profondo rosso, Suspiria, Quattro mosche di velluto grigio, L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo. In the credits a special thanks to Maestro Dario Argento.
