HABITAT is a film made of PERSONAL NOTES about life in L’Aquila after the earthquake. It’s an attempt not only to deal with grief with cinematic means, but also to explore the relationship between personal conditions and collective history, between mutation of common spaces and mutation of the self. HABITAT follows the story of three men who lived in the same tent and stayed in L'Aquila. One, Alessio, first becomes a squatter, then a real estate agent; Paolo, who made a living renting his properties in the very center of the town, becomes a painter. The third tent-mate is Emiliano, the director of this movie. He makes this documentary about life in L'Aquila and the alienating reality of the C.A.S.E. settlements, the houses built by the Berlusconi Government after the earthquake. He faces with their being “non places”, places without identity, far from the town as well from the history and the culture of the place. Habitat follows INTO THE BLUE, the film Dante made in a tent camp in 2009.
