Bolinas Library Presents “Arrangiarsi” (Pizza…the art of living) Movie and Q&A with Director Matteo Troncone, See trailer and extra info at http://www.arrangiarsifilm.com/

Arrangiarsi (pizza… and the art of living)” chronicles my journey in search of the secret of the pizza in Naples.  There, I also discovered “arrangiarsi”: the art of making something out of nothing.

Only the Italians have a common verb for this art form and the Neapolitans are known all over Italy as being the masters.

During the making of this film, I lived for five years in my camper van in California and in a tent in Naples, Italy where I made a total of nine trips for filming.  I worked, bartered and “arranged” my life to create this film that I wrote, directed, produced, photographed, narrated and edited.

To truly understand the film’s subject matter, it was important for me to actually “live it” — not just go to Naples for two weeks with a big budget, a film crew and be a “tourist,” but to immerse myself and deeply experience the culture.

The film also explores each element of Neapolitan pizza: the tomato, wheat and olive harvests, as well as Italy’s only organic buffalo mozzarella farm.  In addition to each ingredient, the film examines the skill of the “pizzaiolo” (pizza-maker) and reveals their secrets.

From the beginning, I envisioned this project to be more of a non-fiction film with narrative elements rather than a documentary with talking heads.  I wanted this film to be “alive” — like Naples, and the pizza it created.

This seven-year project is my love letter to Naples, pizza, Italy, and the knowledge that “there is always a way.”

We also act as a Fiscal Sponsor to give non-profit status to many important local organizations, like Bolinas Immigration Action Committee, the Bolinas-Stinson Summer Camp, Bolinas Bay Performing Arts and a dozen other groups.
