After having traveled the world with the documentary on the multi-ethnic orchestra that was formed in Rome's Esquilino neighborhood (entitled L'Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio), the protagonists of that adventure, Agostino Ferrente and Mario Tronco, have initiated and promoted the making of video portraits of each individual musician in the orchestra, shot in their native countries. The first two were filmed in Argentina by Alessandro Rossetto and in Tunisia by Leonardo Di Costanzo. The idea is to build up a collection of stories made by a new "orchestra" of directors. The screening of the shorts, premiered by the Fest, is further enriched by an unusual musical performance by some of the original Orchestra's musicians.
