Synopsis

 He wanted to be Walt Disney and he became Alessandro Mendini. Creator of a parallel universe, ironic and tragic, intimate and able to speak to the world, in any language. Architecture, art, design, writing, and critique. A protagonist of the 20th and 21st centuries telling the story of a dream which become true, like Walt Disney. “My way of acting and designing is an autobiographic need”, he says. “I have the feeling of belonging to the past. I use antique methods, far away from the today’s logic, such as the pencil. Although I have always criticized it, even my search for beauty is old fashioned.” A research accompanied by many encounters – Alberto Alessi, Emilio Ambasz, François Burkhardt, Piero Bisazza, Germano Celant, Anna Gili, Joseph Grima, Giovanna Mazzocchi, to name a few- by the obsessions, the utopias, such as designing the perfect object. To serve as counterpoint a disenchanted voice, Elio’s - famous performer and singer - and the animated short film written and directed by Era Ora & Ivana Gloria.
