LA FREGATURA (2024) by N.A.I.P. and Mirko Bonezzi  

Live soundtrack by N.A.I.P. 

La fregatura is the title of the still unreleased medium feature-length film written and produced ad hoc for the 2024 Pesaro Film Festival by Michelangelo Mercuri (N.A.I.P.) and Mirko Bonezzi. The film makes a survey of the different seasons of life which all living beings go through, like loneliness, friendship, love, chaos up until the ending. The latter is not seen as a sad, burdensome conclusion but as a sort of rip-off (literal translation of the title), a rule of the game in itself. The rip-off appears in the form of a grin, the same grin under which humans disguise themselves, mistakenly hoping that the rip-off will never catch them. Like a narrator’s voice, the sounds describe the image, the energy, and the emotional phases of each part of the story.

N.A.I.P. After a long experience with the band Dissidio, an experimental rock band from Lamezia, and an intense live activity in underground circuits, in 2019 he debuted with his first solo work entitled “Nessun disco in particolare”. Known to the general public for the 2020 run of X-Factor where he came fourth. In 2021, he soundtracked a selection of early 20th century avant-garde short films called “Concerto Muto” for the Pesaro Film Festival. In 2023, he released the EP “Dovrei dire la mia”.  

Mirko Bonezzi is an independent music video director who studied at the Scuola Organica di Cinematografia “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern” in Bologna. He won in the youth section of the “Reggio Film Festival” in 2021 and 2022.

 

 

A decade of bare, unvarnished Wall; of wild, but reasoned programming; of illustrious and essential proposals. A space for experimentation whose embryo hatched in 2015. But then images clung to the Wall like ivy does in Spring, and sounds were set free like outlandish fireflies giving off their flashes over nocturnal paths. Now the Wall has become a (mutant and mutable) meeting that can’t be missed. Senses are unchained in a space in which, nourished by vibrating gazes, foraged by precious imaginaries, suggestions are redeemed. Novel psycho-temporal premieres, unique experiences that, between improvisations, surgical synchronizations, and emotional experiments, have elevated the unreal and turned it into… a reality. Palazzo Gradari, the temple of imagination. The five events of this year, poised between light and abyss, will give voice to original impromptu, and therefore absolute, experiences. Past the 2015-2024 twilight, the Wall of Sound is ready to take off.

Anthony Ettorre

 

We have looked this decade of projecting images onto the Wall of Palazzo Gradari in the eyes. We have caressed the profile of musicians intertwined with film directors of the past and the present, between the calculated gestures of actors and actresses or immersed in pure pictures untethered from any story. We have put all our desires in a row. The result was these 5 evenings, made of 5 unique live soundtracks, several unexpected meetings, animals, soccer players, and little dolls. The common thread – do not touch bare-handed! – might be the sweet dissolution of identity, when it becomes too stiff and makes us cantankerous and  savage. It could also be the desire to discuss seriously about games and playing, discarding the fascist trivial assertion that it’s “stuff for children.” We’ll be waiting for critical analyses. We will never give up. 

Vittorio Ondedei

 

The Wall of Sound reversed the idea that this solid, vertical object, the wall, conveys the notion of blocking, filtering, pushing back, separating, defending, shutting. 
The images and sounds that have been played on that surface over the years made that wall crumble and collapse, every time. 
The miracle is repeated punctually with the same enthusiasm and the same desire.
The wall becomes liquid, and we can cross it. Beyond it, there is infinity. By Palazzo Gradari, the divisive function of walls was never given a chance to exist. Ever.
