The Casa Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena was opened Saturday to honor the life and work of Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the Italian sports car manufacturer.

Fine by Virgilio Villoresi

Fine is the story of birth, life and death of a soldier, represented on a hand (mine, for instance).

The movie is inspired by the concept of handpainting, very close to the works of italian artist Mariotti and the finger videos movement. Dedicated transitions created with the technique of the shuft pan has been used to create a true cinematografic editing through the hand.

Both the initial and final soundtrack, as well as the military salute of the last scene are a hommage to Jiri Trnka’s masterpiece “The Hand”.
