“I started shooting in a public garden in downtown Naples where kids spent the afternoons playing, letting time pass. I met Antonio there. He was twelve years old and he let me film his life. At first he had fun and and he demonstrated real curiosity, but then he began to show signs of disinterest and did not come back. I wanted to give him a tribute.” (Leonardo di Costanzo)
