Nanni Moretti is a film director and actor; he lives in Rome where has a cinema in Travestere with a cake name; he loves cinema and water polo…and he knows how to look to human being and life.
I “met” him some years ago when his movie «Caro Diario» was in exhibition” in Lisbon.

But if you think that I will talk about Nanni Moretti you are wrong.
I will talk about beer.

«I have drunk a “Birra Moretti” (a very blonde and good beer) at “Rivoire”, in Piazza Della Signora, Florence, this afternoon,. La piazza was full of people. The open café of “Rivoire” was empty when I decided to sit there. After eating a nice «lasagne» I was ready to take some photos when I realise that… just my table was there. So, I composed the bottle of beer with the glass cup and…this photo was born.
But not alone, as I’ve discovered a few time later, that I’ve got also a great a flu» (*)

(*) Extracted from my “Caro Diario” (passage written in the 30th December of 2008)

Hi Teresat.

I like the composition and the colors very much; as well as the beer. ;-) Nice macro.

Best Regards

very good close up shot with sharp details and clarity
colors fine and composition too!

ahahaha, I love this shot and the note - meet Moretti... =)
I can picture you sitting at this table with your beer, thinking of cinema, looking at people around you...

Nanni Moretti says in one of his movies, "Palombella rossa" I think it was, "chi parla male, pensa male e vive male. bisogna trovare le parole giuste. le parole sono importanti!" - roughly translated, it means that if you speak badly, you will think badly and you will live badly; you need to find the right words - words are important!
(I could quote Chomsky again here - but I won't =)

yes, words are important. we define ourselves through our choice of words. and you always choose your words carefully, it seems to me. for this I am grateful =)
I am not surprised at all you keep a journal...

Hi Teresat:

You made me thirsty for beer.
An exceptional composition.
Very nice details and colors.
Feel better.

Warm regards,

Boa noite Teresa,

ahahahahahahahahah you should be a writer. First you start with excellent introduction of Moretti, which convinces us that you will continue in that style...and then a sudden twist in the story and you talk about beer. Excellent!

I love the note and the image dear friend. Just like Cris said...I can definitely imagine you sitting at this table and talking and thinking of cinema...but next time maybe with Cris and me? ;) That would be great experience.

Wonderful image (really high quality shot) that got me in a really good mood. :):) It is great to see you keep a diary...me too. And I usually write whole essays in it. ahahahahahahahahahahahah

Um abraço and I am happy to meet Moretti,


P.S. Cris, it is always great to quote Chomsky ;)

I like this shot! Very nice work on the glass and the liquid is smooth! Very nice lighting and I like the bubbles!!

Ola Teresa,
Bom trabalho,gostei da composicao,daria um belo poster.

I like this photo Teresat!
You built your image with multiple layers and transparency in a beautiful harmony of colors and forms!! Seeing the bottle through the glass of beer, I think that you built your comment with the same way! We must see behind the words to go where you want that we go! You have the talent to choose the good idea or pretext to bring your artistic intention. The passage at Caro Diario is in this case.
Before have seen your photo, I did't know anything about Nanni Moretti. You have given me the taste to learn more about his work and what I discovered is great! Thank you so much! Bravo! Annie

Bom dia Teresa
Wonderful capture and composition
Great note
Take care

Hello Teresat,
Nice composition clarity and mood.
Beer is good choice...

Hi Teresat,

Love to try this beer, such a simple subject but
creatively composed using the available light.
Very sharp details and natural colors. Did you use flash on this?


Hi Teresat,
you've composed your photo here with beautiful colors and shapes. really beautiful humorous and artwork photos.
love the effect on the glass and the note
so inspiring.

Ciao Teresa. Altra straordinaria idea relizzata in modo impeccabile. Molto molto difficile. Che bel colpo.


ciao Teresa..
link between nanni and beer is typical from a stranger (or from a movies maniac)! ;)) I dont know why.. but i think no one.. italian.. could make the same link!.. ;)) it's expecially cause birra moretti is birra moretti.. and nanni moretti is nanni moretti, here.. ;)) it's not enought to have the same second name.. even if.. you made me laught a lot with this paragon.. never thought about it!! ;))
i really love Nanni Moretti.. is one of my favorite italian movie maker! and in truth.. i dont love so much the beer.. sure it's not my favorite!.. unfortunately we are not able to make a good beer here in italy! ;))
Nanni is a progressist.. a democratic.. even if it's more exact to say.. that he is a comunist.. in the old italian sense of the meanings (partito comunista italiano sure was one of the most original interpretation and expirience of the european past context.. of course.. because, first thing.. we are italians.. with our own way to look at the world)! ;))
I'm not crazy.. it's not a bad way to classificate him.. cause his political orientation.. had influenced the great part of his production.. "ecce bombo", "palombella rossa", "la seconda volta" "aprile", "il caimano" some of his title more famous in this sense!.. His criticism about italian society.. is always ironic, acute and strong.. but what i like more of his way to make cinema.. is the delicate and brightly humor.. maybe unic in italy..
caro diario.. is a wonderful film indeed.. great expecially for the big surrealism! but here in italy there wasn't a big entusiasm for the Cannes victory from a part of mass media.. expecially for his open affiliation to a specific politic part!! the same thing was about Dario Fo nobel of 1997! but you know we are not a free press nation! ;))
my favorite movie is.. without doubts.. aprile.. for a lot of reasons!! i think it's not understable from a stranger.. cause it's typical of italian facts and mood of these past years (1998).. however there is a part dedicate expecially to the born of his first son.. and in it.. a wonderful use of Einaudi's "le onde".. in a beautiful scene taken on Tiberina Island in Rome!..
as you understand.. sure i'm a progressist.. and he was my hero in a lot of movies i have seen.. i dont agree with him about a lot of things.. but to look to a Nanni Moretti movie is always a pleasure.. old or new movies.. they always have a wonderful taste of intelligence.. ;))
well.. so nice the idea.. you are always a surprise!.. excellent post with note! thanks Teresa
ciao Marco

There is certainly nothing better than a frosty on a warm day. Nice frame with the beer bottle and the glass being so transparent and nice.

Have a nice weekend and TFS

hi Teresa

Sharpness and good clarity of this abstract shot. Interesting to see bubbles at left side of the glass. The beer bottle at right is unlike beer bottles we have here. Nice shot.

tfs, bill

Hi Teresat,
What a stunning image vith great composition.TFS.
Um grande abraço,


Greetings, Teresat -
Interesting composition. The slightly distorted beer bottle reflection in the glass beside it creates an unusal effect. Even without your note, I would have guessed that it was taken in an Italian piazza based upon the feel of the image. Well done.

Hi Teresa
Sorry for small delay with comments..
Your works are really specific..
note and photos, always connected in one piece..
Simply wonderful :)

Hi Teresat..nice shot as always...artistically composed...technically excellent...nice job.

HI Teresat
Excellent work.
The reflection of the bottle and the building including the bubbles extremely sharp.
Good interesting note and now after seeing this I think I should have a beer to satisfy my craving. Yes I can.

Hi Teresat
Very nice shot with soft colors
You have your own uniqe style of PP works, BRAVO
I love your shots, :))
Regards, ALIREZA

Cheers, dear Teresat.
Yes that Italian beer taste good. Think it is the most selling beer in Italy.
I mostly drink it when in Sicily too.
Your Picture is perfect, with the reflection of the bottle in the full glas of beer.
Thanks for the story aswell.
Cheers and ciao ciao from Jan

Hi Terest,
wow...this is a superbs shot of clarity and sharpness. The deliberate framinf focusses on its title is very much appreciated.
Texture of the bread, the golden beer and the reflection on the glass surface is nice looking at.
The stylish man with hat is very special to note.
The culture is well observed and learned too.
It would be different to see what is served on out evening table.
Still bubbling and big glass, only it is tea with milk well shaken to give a special brew too. Really nice and it looks the same with the man with heavy moustache.


Hi Teresat:
very nice compositon.
excellent POV.
wonderful colors and details

Hi Teresat,
What a super composition !!
I posted a Moretti photo before, see this link. Its a great beer, thats sure.
I like the colors and compo very much. TFS.

Hi Teresat,
One little story teller this is..))
Nice composition, and visuel interest. Nice mixture of texture. I really like looking thru the glass, the feel of a street up ahead.
Nice mood. Also feel like a lovely pose on some warm terrasse...)))
Cheers, and thanks for your recent visit. Don't have much time the past few days...to spend on Treklens...other things to attend...but temporary.

Olá, minha amiga!

Tudo é uma questão de como vemos as coisas, e você consegue transformar uma simples imagem em algo incansável de se ver, graças ao seu ótimo e criativo olhar. Foto original e de muito bom gosto. Meus parabéns, Teresa!

Grande abraço,

Hi Teresa,
Really impressive photo, creative job! The reflection of the bottle and the nice golden colou of the bier is fantastic, good depth and sharpness. Well relized idea, great shot! TFS:

Boa tarde T!

Fiquei com agua na boca ali na parte de teres comido uma lasagna... :P
Excelente POV, amiga. Muito boa nitidez, gostei dos reflexos no copo.
Parabéns e feliz dia da mulher :)

Your photo opens correctly the mouth completely largely, it looks in such a way as if it would have stretched the tongue and showed the beer to try, that you us wonderful. Beautiful colors and a good macro picture.
Happy Easter to you, too.
Best wishes.

Good morning Teresa,
Beauty can indeed be found everywhere, it is in the beholder's eyes. Superb details, love the combination of macro type effect and refletion. You inspired me to go to the Italian store this weekend and get myself some "Birra Moretti” . I wish you a good day. Danilo

Congratulations my friend for your great skill.

This picture speaks for itself, dear Teresa!

Amazing perspective and nice focus with wonderful color harmony.
The POV and clarity are well done, and an informative note along with your own way of thinking do add to the overall appeal of the picture.
