Dalla mente e le mani di Giovanni Grazzani vede la luce questo progetto video, realizzato in collaborazione con il web magazine olandere Tagster: si tratta di una clip filmata da lui stesso a Barcellona, con protagonisti gli skater italiani che vivono là e qualche amico straniero che solitamente gira con loro.
Il video si chiama The Dark Side of Barcelona e viene introdotto da questo preambolo:
We’re all familiar with the perfect climate, spots on every corner and picturesque beauty of Barcelona. But as you might have noticed the political situation in Spain is very complicated right now. The past few months Barcelona has been exposed to strikes, protests and sometimes riots. The police acts in a extra high state of alert and civilians are fed up with the anarchy on the streets.
In between all this madness skateboarders still roam the streets day and night. It’s almost like they are living in their own alternate reality. They don’t seem to care about police, fines, angry mobs, pickpockets and such. They keep it cool, while the heat is on.
In this video you can have a peek into their world which is far from reality. A peek into the dark side of Barcelona with some of the best skateboarders from Italy, France, Belgium and Spain.
If you dare…
