THE RIVER TIBER

Rarely one pays attention to the rivers which cross large cities.The camera follows a fictitious character, in voice over, who comes back to Rome and decides to cross the city along the Tiber in one day. It is a historical walk which starts in the north of the city in residential districts then continues through buildings dating from Fascism, the sites of the shooting of the film 'Bicycle Thieves' of Vittorio de Sica, until the relics of the commercial ports near the seaside. Built like a 'road movie' the contrast between the today's abandoned river banks and the frantic life of ancient times is striking. Between the remains of industrial archaeology, the districts being renewed and the spots that inspired Pasolini's early novels, one collects in one day many impressions which give a different view on the city.
