In 1993 Riccardo Fazi spent a week on holiday in Rimini with his parents. Here he met a fourteen-years old girl, the same age of him, who said him goodbye leaving a cassette with a message recorded on it: “Bye Rome! See you in Santarcangelo!”.
After twenty-two years Riccardo found this object again and the memory it arose triggered a research: Fazi arrives in Santarcangelo and asks the inhabitants to help him find the name linked to that voice coming from the past. “Antologia di S.” is the chronicle of this research.

I am Analog
by Jonathan Zenti
For five years the radio producer Jonathan Zenti has been making recordings with elderly Italians that explore old cultural rites in his country that are in danger of disappearing.
Imelda, who appears in this short documentary, was one of the voices Zenti happened to capture for this ongoing project. The prayer she says to San Antonio would traditionally be used to rediscover very important lost items – wedding rings, documents, jewels etc – but at the time the only thing Zenti was keen to recover was his lost t-shirt.
Jonathan Zenti is an independent radio producer based in Milan, Italy.
He is the content director at Voxnest and he is the curator of the Mondoascolti program at the Internazionale Festival in Ferrara. Since 2004 he frequently collaborates with RAI Radio3.
He is co-founder and a proud board member of MIRP – Meeting of Independent Radio Producers.
