Patrizia Santangeli / Italy / 2009/ 78 min

ALLEGRO MODERATO is a documentary about music and passion that generates energy and makes exceptional what fate would have willed weak. The Esagramma Symphony Orchestra stands out from other ensamble for a simple reason: the musicians involved are young people and adults affected by serious mental diseases. The educators' task is to teach them to play and love the different orchestral instruments from cello to harp to violin to timpani and so on. Esagramma is a real orchestra, with extraordinary professionals, a special orchestra that the documentary depicts going beyond the surface of things and reading through the musical gestures. With the Esagramma Orchestra played even Stefano Bollani, as musician among musicians : the enjoyable and richly improvisational rehearsal was shot and told in the documentary.

foto bio

Patrizia Santangeli currently lives in Rome where she is a creative director at Kpr&Key. It all began from the microphones of a private radio in 1984 when songs like Tears for Fearís Shout and De Gregoriís La Donna Cannone filled the airwaves. Then the music changed and her love for written creativity arrived, so much so that in the early Ď90s she became a copywriter and began working freelance in a communication agency. At the same time, in 1994, her passion for directing led to the creation of various films for business communications. She also directed documentaries for Rai 3: L'ISOLA DELLE TARTARUGHE and ERANO PALUDI. In 2003 he was a founding member of the creative agency Kpr&Key.
