Two days on set: a ruin medieval city in the region of Lazio, Italy; abandoned during the XIX century after mysterious circumstances. Galeria Antica is a beautiful setting that inspired the story for this music video, “La Bambina” for the homonymous original song by Luca Donati.

In this case, Luca Donati, the author of this song, gave us total freedom about the story to tell. Certainly, it was a challenge for me and Marco, to create a concept for this instrumental song. The absence of lyrics makes it hard to find a narrative, because it’s open to infinite possibilities and at the same time there are no strings attached so you can be creative at 360 degrees. The only word attached to the song is the title: La Bambina, “The Girl”. We surely wanted to create a narrative that intrigue the viewer but leave them space to imagination. It ‘s been an amazing creative session; we listened to the music over and over, let the imagination run free and, created a story that would fits within the budget.
