Last March, me and other friends went to Venice to partecipate to a ShortMovie festival. We reached the finals, a great feeling for all of us because the short movie that we made was the first for our little indipendent production house.
The festival was Circuito Off, and our shortmovie was “Non piangere sul refosco versato”. Our production house is called Antitesi.com, but this is not the time to talk about it. In a next post I want to tell you more about this project.
Now I want to tell you about this day in Venice… these 3 pictures were taken in the underground pedestrians passage of the train station of Mestre ( near Venice ). Notice the overexposed effect… before the “click”, my hand covered most of the lens, just to force the camera to open the diafram more… the results can be very interesting. You can see here:
Two pictures of my crashed car.
It’s a Fiat Punto, a ten-year-old Italian car. The insurance company will pay only the current value of the car, not the whole repairing price… then I decided to buy a new car… a Citroen C3 (I will wait until September!)… for now my father or my brother lend me their car when I need.
A car is essential to do my job, but I’m lucky because some of my customers are gentlemen: they pick me up at home and bring me back when the job’s done…. so lucky! 😉
Fiat S.p.A. (an acronym for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino (Italian Automobile Factory of Turin) is an Italian automobile manufacturer, engine manufacturer, financial and industrial group based in Turin in the Piedmont region. Founded in 1899 by a group of investors including Giovanni Agnelli. Fiat has also manufactured tanks and aircraft.
Fiat based cars are constructed all around the world—the largest concern outside Italy is in Brazil (best seller ). It also has factories in Argentina and Poland. Fiat has a long history of licensing its products to other countries regardless of local political or cultural persuasion. Joint venture operations are found in France, Turkey, Egypt (with the state owned Nasr car company), South Africa, India, and China.
Agnelli’s grandson Gianni Agnelli was Fiat chairman from 1966 until his death on 24 January 2003. However, from 1996, he only served as an “honorary” chairman, while the chairman was Cesare Romiti. After their removal, Paolo Fresco served as chairman and Paolo Cantarella as CEO. Umberto Agnelli then took over as chairman from 2002 to 2004. After Umberto Agnelli’s death on 28 May 2004, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo was named chairman, but Agnelli heir John Elkann became vice chairman at age 28 and other family members are on the board. At this point, CEO Giuseppe Morchio immediately offered his resignation. Sergio Marchionne was named to replace him on 1 June 2004.
