«Chianti. Сна-cha-cha”

Two gifts from Derevo Art House for the New Year!

The first one:

Those days of carefree happiness under the Italian sun. We realised that we were already world famous. And it was bothering us for some reason. We stopped the shows and secluded ourselves in an old house near Florence.
We lived in silence and wanted to learn to laugh and idle again, not to give serious interviews.
The performance "ONCE" was born, which is still alive today and has already become a friendly abyss, where we jump into with rumbles and laughter.
To your attention is the restored film "Chianti Cha-cha-cha". The inimitable, elusive lightness of those days.

«... ché tu intrasti povero e digiuno
in campo, a seminar la buona pianta
che fu già vite e ora è fatta pruno».
