THE FILM: BELLA VITA

Directed by Jason Baffa

Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of western civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers, and kings.  Preserved like a roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to explore a culture where old-world-convention and traditional craftsmanship have matured into a modern surf lifestyle and destination.

A visual epic captured in stunning 35MM, Bella Vita is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, steeped in culture, tradition, and passion – where family comes first.

*The Surfing Madonna Oceans Project is dedicated to bringing the community together to “Save the Ocean” and protect our coastline. Through youth education programs, ocean conservation project grants, marine mammal rescue/recovery initiatives and helping children with special needs experience the healing power of the ocean, we are helping to expand this community of ocean advocates.  Learn more about them HERE
