Il gesto delle mani (original title)


A stunning insight to the creation of a bronze sculpture is revealed in Il Gesto Delle Mani (Hand Gestures). Setting his film at the historic Fonderia Artistica Battaglia bronze foundry, which was established in Milan in 1913, director Francesco Clerici focuses on the creation of one of the famous Off Leash dog sculptures by artist Velasco Vitali. Commencing the documentary with vintage photographs of the foundry in the past, a brief history of lost-wax casting is explained and the context is established.
