The idea about the documentary on Fausto Delle Chiaie is born from a desire to inspect deeply the reasons and philosophy behind his artorks. His Open Air Museum is a symbol of his openness on different levels: the artist unveils himself to the world and his artworks get unveiled to the public. Besides it’s a gallery of open air “images” that gives countless hints of deep meditation in a context generally not so suitable on such kind of purpose: the street.

In this documentary Fausto Delle Chiaie presents himself on an artistic and personal level. Through improvised performances created from raw material that just the artist can imagine as art. Using living sculpture, inspired from an external and involuntary source that could comprehend his character, the visitors and the pedestrians. But also a journey among recycled objects and scrap materials where ironic and informal art goes beyond the appearance, it becomes social critic or example, paradox or “boutade”. Delle Chiaie found himself a space in the eternal city and offers an unusual sight to the visitors. A special relationship with Roma whereof Fausto Delle Chiaie tells its features. The relationship between the artist with his “art”.
