HAPPY EASTER FROM FLORENCE

In this video Filmmaker David Battistella collaborates with Florentine legend

Luciano Artusi to bring you a glimpse of the Florentine Easter Tradition, cancelled in 2020 for the first time since WW2.

This writer and filmmaker combined ideas and talents to create the film, while in complete lockdown and isolation in Italy. They created the film as a contribution to lifting people’s spirits and to demonstrate their mutual love of Florence. 

The two met when Battistella moved to Florence to research his hero

Fillipo Brunelleschi and write a film about his life. They became fast friends and have a passionate curiosity for all things Florentine!

Battistella continues to make films about fascinating people, stories and places in his new home in Florence, Italy and the pair are already planning their next collaboration.
