Vogliamo anche le rose (We Want Roses Too) is a short film created for Marco Rambaldi’s 2018/2019 Fall-Winter collection. He is one of the most interesting emerging talents in Italian fashion. The film talks about the complex themes of his project and aesthetics that portray the generational and cultural transition between those who lived revolutionary unrest in the 1970s and today’s youths. It focuses on conveying ethical and political values through an open dialogue, free of judgement from those who were in the frontlines during the battles.
It stars Valérie Taccarelli, one of the first Italian transsexuals, an activist for LGBT rights, and one of the founders of MIT, Movimento Identità Transgender (Transgender Identity Movement), in Bologna.
The film was shot at the Barlassina Country Club where Michelangelo Antonioni filmed one of his masterpieces, La Notte (The Night), in 1961.
