    • Synopsis
    • This is a documentary talking about contemporary Italy through the ancient art of barbers, something that makes cities and towns still alive. The protagonists are people and places that have established a trend, from the hipster style, to the traditional cut “Alla Umberto”. The goal of the film is to get a look at the discovery of some hooking stories, which take us into a journey between fast, secure hands equ
      ipped with scissors and razors.
      In the imaginary of people, barbers remind of the famous masters in Sicily, and perhaps this is due to literature and films about Mafia. The barbers’ shops were indeed the places where to waylay Mafia Bosses.
      But, besides that region, in Italy there is a long tradition of barbers, and this job was and it is quite widespread throughout the country.
      Barbers’ shops represent points of encounter, and there are examples of them in Florence, Rome, Capri, Genoa, Carrara, Milan, Alghero, Sassari and many more
