The trilogy “THEY KNOW IT” wants to show the intrinsic nature of the city of Cagliari through short microzoops with an epiphanic character. Through these apparitions the spectator finds himself helpless to observe his own city devoured by ants. Become part of a system, that of inaction, of the lack of solutions, both on the part of institutions and on the part of ordinary cItizens. Cagliari as a symbol, like any other city, capable of living only through what it was without a more than faint idea of any future. Fortunately, something moves, only for a few eyes. Those who know the city know that reality is somewhere else, that Cagliari is alive. There is really a strong ferment among the new generations, but they are only able to expand their small and limited ego. There is no social cohesion, there is no human solidarity. Sometimes it happens to meet some rare exceptions, and it is an immense pleasure in a dead city. Dead, because there is no other way. Cities are now doomed to failure, cities as we know them now. The ants know this and sanction it with their arrival
