FANZINE - series n. 1

“Italy is in the heart of every French and all the French feel close to Italy and believe that Italy has a culture, a lifestyle and an economic know-how."
Nicolas Sarkozy – April 26, 2011

Pierre Clementi was arrested in Rome for alleged use of drugs. At that time he was acting in Bertolucci’s "Partner". It was in 1977 and he spent 17 months in prison while Italy and France reached each other in their aesthetic and contradictions. After that he was no longer the same.

He returned to France by train, the one which runs along the Italian coastline. Between Genoa and Nice, the seafront consists of beaches and cliffs. The track passes through many hills and at each exit of the tunnel, the sea rises dazzling.
Tunnel - sea, then tunnel again - then blue, black - blue, black - blue... Like the film of a movie...
Black - an image, black - an image... But for Pierre Clementi life had already joined fiction for 17 months.

At that time the train used to stop at Ventimiglia. We grew up in that train, looking at the sea, playing our lives in a movie, like radiant children, selfish children protected by fortress Europe. Every time we looked out of the window, an image appeared. Hands, gestures, clouds of different shapes, different colors, different lines and styles.

Today the train can stop forever, but our bodies, always searching for a terminal “cliché”, won’t ever stop moving.
