Documentary, by Emiliano Dante, Italy, 2014.
Habitat follows the story of three men who lived in the same tent and stayed in L'Aquila. One, Alessio, first becomes a squatter, then a real estate agent; Paolo, who made a living renting his properties in the very center of the town, becomes a painter. The third tent-mate is Emiliano, the director of this movie. He makes this documentary about life in L'Aquila and the alienating reality of the C.A.S.E. settlements, the houses built by the Berlusconi Government after the earthquake. He faces with their being “non places”, places without identity, far from the town as well from the history and the culture of the place.
