Cortile d'acqua is a videoart installation created in 2001 for the exhibition "Io Adriatico. CiviltaÌ€ di mare tra frontiere e confini", held at the Mole Vanvitelliana in Ancona. Loop projection took place in a room, with 4 video projectors and 4 large screens inside the Mole. The installation is made up of 4 synchronized masters shown on screens lined up horizontally: during the showing of the film, the 4 independent images sporadically unite to compose a single image 64m x 9m. Present are locations, views, symbolic elements and "portraits" of inhabitants of areas along the Adriatic coast and eastern Mediterranean, who speak to the audience in their native languages, with brief comments and anecdotes in Greek, Serbo-Croatian, Albanian, Turkish, and southern Italian dialects from Puglia and Le Marche. Subtitles in Italian, including a short glossary of terms.
