A DOCUMENTARY ON THE RIVER OF LIFE
French director Bruno Toussaint and script writer Marco Bertagni are working on a documentary on The River of Life project and on Emotional Geography.
Watch this space as locations and filming are underway in Tuscany this September.
Catching Genius Loci in Anzio, Garfagnana & Lisbon
Do you want to understand the genius loci? You must know the techniques of mindfulness and multi-sensory perception, but also to choose places immersed in the somewhereness.
There are three locations that the THE RIVER OF LIFE Project makes available to emotional travelers: VILLA THE RIVER OF LIFE in Anzio, perfect for organizing events, THE PHILOSOPHY LODGE, operational starting from 2023, in the wonderful village of La Sambuca in Garfagnana , minimalist house for deep reflections in front of the fireplace and immersed in silence and THE TRAVELER’S NEST, nominated among the Top Ten short rental homes in Lisbon in 2022.
IL BAMBINO CON LA VALIGIA: THE MOVIE
IL BAMBINO CON LA VALIGIA – A rigorous, restless middle-aged geographer finds a photo of himself from when he was three, portrayed with a suitcase in his hand, and he is thrown into an emotional storm.
Thus begins a supernatural journey of thirty-six hours, along the banks of a river that marks the boundary between reality and imagination.
In this introspective journey, the protagonist loses his sense of orientation, he lets his disturbances flow, and finally gets rid of them.
In his new awareness, nothing is the same as before.
LORENZO AND THE LAKE OF THE STOLEN DREAMS
The whole project THE RIVER OF LIFE is inspired by and dedicated to Lorenzo Guarnieri and to the people who live on the shores of the Lake of The Stolen Dreams. The main theme of the movie IL BAMBINO CON LA VALIGIA is the fight with the dragons of indifference and injustice. The River game PLAYING FOR LIFE is based on the changing of perspectives in order not to repeat the same mistakes and to get closer to our dreams in the name of RESPECT for life, for self, for others and for Planet Earth.
THE RIVER GAMES
Marco Bertagni and the Geographers of Emotions have created 16 River Games so far, and they constantly use them while coaching in business environments, schools, universities, organisations and so on.
We understand that nowadays learning by doing and gamification is the deepest and most amazing way of sharing knowledge and supporting people in their personal and professional growth.
These games are particularly adaptable to bespoke corporate training needs.
