0 – 5 | 2015 | Commentaire | Documentary | Italy | Sport | 2014

A “coxless pair” slips smoothly along the calm waters of the Navigli. It passes through the city of Milan heading south-west, to the countryside, along Via Ludovico il Moro, the enlightened Duke, friend of the artists, who commissioned Leonardo da Vinci this ingenious system of irrigation canals and waterways, which connected Lake Maggiore, to Como and down Ticino.

The athlete, Florinda Trombetta, and the coach, Francesco Stoppa, frome the Canottieri Milano Club, tell us about feelings and life of this sport which is also passion and deep relation with oneself, with the elements, with the territory. Through a slow but concise narration, with the right mix of drone-panoramas, establishing shot, close-ups and details taken with mini-cameras, I Navigli, directed by Ruggero Longoni and written by Lorenzo Faggi, is part of the Tracce.tv project, which aims to “narrate a territory through moving images, depicting people and their small or great stories that happen in these places.”

This work, is part of a series of shortdocs commissioned by the City of Milan, and is made by Colto, a production company founded in Milan in 2011, specialized in documentaries, content for the web or satellite channels, commercials and short films for public and private companies with an outlook on the cultural, economic and tourist development of the territory.
