On our Vimeo channel, two documentaries by Italian director Piero Cannizzaro

Ossigeno (Italy, 2012, 60'): the story of Agrippino Costa, an art thief and bank robber, who spent 20 years in 50 different French, Swiss and Italian prisons. After many escape attempts, he spent time in the maximum security prisons and even in a criminal asylum, and only an appeal by Dario Fo and Franca Rame prevented him from becoming insane. Through all that, he never stopped writing poetry.

La notte della Taranta e dintorni (Italy, 2001, 53'): the night of the Taranta takes place in the Salento area of Puglia, southern Italy, every year in August and it has become one of the most important events of the kind in Europe. Piero Cannizzaro explores this important celebration of the traditional music of the area as well as its fusion with other musical genres.
