A wedding that was supposed to take place in 2020 but which has turned into an elopement in the decadent palace that has stood still for decades of the groom's grandparents. A preparation bordering on blasphemy, an intimate ritual and a rock party with a few friends. This is the love story of Esteban and Elida who decide to get married in Lecce in the family palace inherited from the groom's ancestors.
The prestigious baroque palace belonged to the Romano family for centuries and is located in the heart of the historic center of Lecce, adjacent to the Roman theater.
Hear the stories of the two descendants of the Aragonese noble families of the so-called black aristocracy blend together (‘black nobility’ was the name given in the past to the part of the Roman aristocracy that remained faithful to the Pope after 1870, and who, holding high offices in the ranks of the pontifical, was required to wear the "Spanish" habit)
After falling in love in Spain, the couple returns to the place where Esteban’s family was happy and which is always a fixed point in the memories of his childhood.
Palazzo Romano is a magnificent example of Lecce Baroque architecture, an artistic and architectural form developed between the end of the 16th century and the first half of the 18th century; it is recognizable for the opulence of its architectural decorations which were intended to surprise and stimulate fantasy and imagination.
Coming back to Lecce, they revive the building after years of neglect even though it resisted in every single detail the passage of time. Being Esteban heir to this fortune, he decides to celebrate with Elida their love there where his ancestors and grandparents celebrated it looking to the past but projecting towards the future with a decadent romantic mood but also glam rock that finds its maximum expression in the party that takes place on the terrace of the building. In addition to the decadent romanticism, the fil rouge of the whole day is the dreamy smoke blanket of the first part characterized by the slow and sensual rhythm that becomes multicolored smoke with a pressing rhythm and special effects.
The mood: Minimal baroque style
The background of the first part of the shooting is the ancient entrance hall with ancient family objects (ancient doors of the '600, remnants of their childhood and musical instruments) where the setting was designed as if it were a minimal vertical forest with wild plants typical of the Apulian territory: the ferla.
The shooting is based on the contrast between the minimalist floral setting and details of the opulence of Baroque architecture and precious antique objects inherited from the family to give rise to a romantic and decadent taste.
The color palette is based on natural colors in the warmest shades of beige, gold and deep blue present in the stationery and precious details.
