Giacomo Farinaartistic director of the section “Nomadic Music” with Luigi Polimeni, explains: “With this contest we had the opportunity to monitor the youth creative territory, without the filters of an artistic direction. ‘Seeing Music’ turned out to be a free and open competition, albeit with criteria to follow and, in fact, in recent weeks we have received various types of video clips from all over Italy. We will also screen an out-of-competition video made by a school in Trento, which talks about war, a current and deeply felt topic. The guys have outlined a very particular and original aesthetic method, with the use of cutting-edge technologies”.
