Gabriele Basilico Directed by Giampiero d’Angeli Italy 2008 51 minutes
Giampiero D’Angeli creates a vivid portrait of Gabriele Basilico, one of Italian great photographers who recently passed away. His activity, based on personal projects and manifold institutional commissions, focuses on the debate about the city and the contemporary landscape through both conceptual and aesthetical works. Moving from Milan to France, from Beirut to Silicon Valley, from Genua to Moscow, Basilico tells about himself and his job in the background of these different scenarios.
