JUNE 2017-2018 | A GREAT YEAR IN L.A. WITH AMATRICIANA
Amatriciana is the stop-motion short film that brought me on more than one red carpet here in Los Angeles, CA where I had to fight the struggle of being in front of a camera but also met some amazing talented people from all over the world, not mentioning the welcoming and rewarding atmosphere and the high quality of the films screened.
After one year of sending link with password, I can finally release it and move on with the next stop-motion short film.
So, here it is, AMATRICIANA, a docu-claymation about the invention of Amatriciana sauce, an ancient story of taste, research and passion.
Based on the true story of Francesco Leonardi (Rome, 1730-1816), the inventor of the tomato sauce as we know it nowadays, who also created the iconic recipe of Amatriciana, adding tomato sauce to the Gricia recipe. The protagonist Francesco turns into the key ingredient while the other ingredients become protagonists themselves.
In memory of all the victims of the earthquake that devastated Centre Italy on Aug 24th, 2016.
