Virna Toppi, prima ballerina at Teatro la Scala, and plotter Davide Garzetti are the protagonists of the short film “Inspired by the classic, moved by the future”, dedicated to the world’s most famous Italian bubbles.
Where the timelessness of the classic meets the experimentation of the future. Where elegance meets the contemporary.
In its project INSPIRED BY THE CLASSIC, MOVED BY THE FUTURE Prosecco DOC communicate that the classic is what draws inspiration from, but it is the future that guides its action : inspiration is the instant when beauty suddenly manifests and ignites our enthusiasm.
This short cinematographic work, curated by the mastery of director Carlo Guttadauro, transforms
Villa Contarini, a jewel of the Baroque Veneto, into a scenographic labyrinth where the classical merges with the contemporary.
Through classical dance and the art of parkour, the short film in life us to explore the convergence of inspiration and action, revealing that the classical is the springboard for a futuristic vision.
This interaction between the classical and the contemporary creates a space for experimentation and innovation, demonstrating that inspiration drawn from the classical becomes the propulsive engine for dynamic and futuristic action.
The short film thus becomes a visual representation of the Prosecco DOC Consortium philosophy: a modern impulse that finds its roots in the past and experiments with the future, the way the classic is transformed from an element of inspiration.
The protagonist of this evocative journey is Virna Toppi, the prima ballerina of La Scala Theater in Milan. With her grace and skill, Virna dances in the Hall of Mirrors of Villa Contarini, illuminated by metaphysical lights, creating a perfect marriage between the classical and the contemporary.
The choice of Virna Toppi as protagonist is not accidental. Her harmonious gestures and the graceful movement of her body embody the beauty of classical dance, which becomes a source of inspiration.
Behind her, in a door framed in stucco, Davide Garzetti, the traceur, brings another story, not classical, but one nourished by the classical: motionless, observes the dance.
The traceur traces linear paths, which draw momentum and muscular tension from the body to perform games.
In the field that unfolds between classical dance and parkour, boundaries vanish and an unprecedented and mysterious space opens up for the relationship. The inebriation of the dream becomes the antechamber of inspiration. The combination of dance and parkour is unprecedented and therefore rich in nuance and novelty.
The journey between the dancer and the athlete touches Venice and the foundations of the Giudecca. Here, as if by magic, an aesthetic transformation takes place: the dancer, who at first glows with a diaphanous light, turns into a black swan. This directorial operation is entrusted to costume designer Salvatore Vignola, who masterfully constructs a sculptural artefact of rare beauty: a black tutu covered in sequins causes light to refract on the dancer’s body, accompanying her movement. Cinzia Trifiletti is entrusted with the hair make-up, with its gritty, Gothic-inspired character.
On an iron bridge in Giudecca, the two meet in a sort of conciliation, a secret agreement. The boundaries vanish, the places they frequent are flashbacks, moments of memory, now there is the present and it is new: they can finally play with the classic and the contemporary, tracing in them the spark of modernity that is actuality, the place where past future are in tension.
The two finally have the luxury of toasting on a terrace overlooking the Canalgrande, and the location on which the toast scenes are filmed is the Sina Centurion Palace.
Prosecco DOC bubbles know the power of lucid inebriation that makes us dream, giving us moments of pure lightness.
Prosecco DOC is a modern momentum that knows how to find its reasons in the past and its experimentation in the future.
After all, without experimentation we would not know what beauty is. Prosecco DOC, inspired by the classic, moved by the future.
