Angelo Bignamini lives in a village south of Milan. Italy was one of the countries in the world where many people died of Covid-19. The government took drastic measures. The population lived practically under house arrest, observed by drones and helicopters; controlled by police in the streets, only permitted to leave their homes with authorisation to be shown on a printed document. Angelo started to record in and outdoor life and occurances right from the start. The translation of ‘vita spericolata’ is ‘reckless life.’
In his words:
“_sound notes collected during the first weeks of quarantine in Castiglione d’Adda (Italy) on cassette, microcassette and smartphone.
