    • Synopsis
    • The Eighth Step tells of an encounter and friendship, exploring memories as well as the pain and weight of loss — yet is recounted with the childlike joy of a little girl looking into the closet of the adult woman, to find again the real sense of a life and also the imprint of an absence, through play and disguise. Seven brief stories tell the encounter with art; beginning from paintings, clothes, shoes and unfinished canvases, left behind and found again in the studio of the Italian-American artist Linda Salerno, in Lugano, Switzerland, who passed away in 2011 and who inspired this film. The art that we contemplate delivers us to the limit of the flight and the heritage that is the eighth step: to be accomplished with confidence the love of the beauty in art. To make it flourish.
