Sinossi / Synopsis (italian and/or english): 
There is a table in the middle of the countryside, but the guests are absent. There is a feast of food and wine waiting in the cold weather and the dry landscape. The vultures are to come and to eat our food and destroy our setting: the still life, the banquet, the space of enjoyment and civilization. The vultures, the beasts linked to death and dirt, to violence and fear, arrive by surprise, and like in a fable, represent for us some of our own qualities. In a continuous search for equilibrium, like funambulists, like on the edge of the abyss, we are always ready to fall into chaos. The hidden and the unexpected rise in spite of the rules believed to control violence and vulnerability. In the gap between private and public life we visualize our everyday life hypocrisy.
