“The protagonists of the final video of Accademia Aperta are Giannetta Ottilia Latis, creator of Accademia dei bambini, and Eugenio Colla of the historical Compagnia Marionettistica Carlo Colla e Figli. The video opens with Giannetta Ottilia Latis, caught by the lens as she crosses the space of Accademia dei bambini. It ends as she watches us sitting on the stairs. It is a discreet reminder of the determination with which she has developed new paths for the children, through a creative exchange between them and the ‘masters’, a productive dialogue in which philosophy, art, cinema and science have merged. Eugenio Colla allows us to enter the magical world of puppets. Perhaps the answer to the question ‘who moves who?’ can be found in his words. Two intelligences, two enthusiasms, a thousand questions left unanswered to which we will try to give answers by continuing with their teachings”.
