Lucio Amelio has been a key-stone for the international art scene: it was
him who, in 1980, put Andy Warhol – the greatest representative of
American pop-art – in touch with the German performing artist Joseph
Beuys; and it was him who, just a few months after this remarkable
meeting, gathered the world most notorious visual artists in his
hometown: Naples, stroke by the consequences of a terrible earthquake.
In that occasion, the world greatest art exponents were called to depict the tragedy, and to give their contribution to the reconstruction, creating the document of an era: “Terrae Motus”. Amelio was the deus-ex- machina and the genius: the wizard who made the impossible, possible. This documentary tells his story.
