«I like the idea of telling stories about surfing, the group of people we put together… That’s what I like most»
— Luca Merli
“Onde Nostre. Guarda dove ti ho portato” is an exploration of the Italian surf culture through the captivating images and suggestive artworks by a group of surfers, film-makers, photographers and surf personalities.
The Italian surf scene is captured in wonderful and emotional shots by Giovanni Barberis, Matteo Ferrari and Filippo Maffei who are – together with Luca Merli, film-maker and true soul of Onde Nostre project – involved into the surf world themselves.
Luca Barcellona, with his unmistakable lettering, contributes to express and transmit the mood of the project starting from the cover.
The book contains the audio-cd with the soundtrack of the journey told in the pages. The disc – also available as a free download for the purchaser – proposes tracks, some unpublished, taken from the two movies and the episodes produced for the web by Onde Nostre.
