EXPLORING THE PAST

To make history documentary is a complex task. Many challenges are involved: finding the right archives and testimonials, the correct interpretation of facts, the need to make present and accessible to the public events often forgotten or little known. We have taken on these challenges together with some colleagues and friends with whom we shared interesting research and reconstruction experiences.
