EDITOR’S NOTE: Sette Miliardi is a short movie directed by Max Rommel which was presented at the 2014 edition of the Milano Design Film Festival. The subject of the movie is Andrea Branzi (a theorist of design and designer of international renown) and the thoughts he developed after working for four years on Dieci Modesti Consigli per una Nuova Carta d’Atene (Edizioni Lithos Como, 2014), a manifesto of ten principles that help the reader interpret the new condition of post-modern cities. Together with Sette Miliardi, here below is a reproduction of the hand-written 7-meter long scroll that Branzi co-wrote with design curator and writer Angela Rui over the course of two years, while gathering thoughts and ideas that eventually coalesced into the short movie.
Sette Miliardi, 2014. Narration by Andrea Branzi, direction by Max Rommel, written by Angela Rui, edited by Massimo Mosca and Romina Bagatin, sound by Enea Bardi, translation by Annabel Little.
