Zonin - Humans 1821

Zonin Prosecco announces the launch of HUMANS 1821: a four-episode series, conceived and created by brandstories.

Authentic, Self-confident and Fresh: these are the elements that represent the brand essence of Zonin Prosecco. A brand essence that Zonin wanted to tell with people, rather than to people. To do this, it relied on brandstories, the Milanese agency specializing in branded entertainment and storytelling formats. Thus was born a story that leads us to explore the world of three authentic and highly inspirational people, through the eyes and lens of photographer Matt Sclarandis.

Three young Italians with a strong international profile. Astrid Luglio, a designer specializing in the creation of glass objects, Thomas Costantin, a musician and DJ and Sofia Cacciapaglia, a painter. Matt Sclarandis enters their world, meets them in their studios, workplaces, homes and photographs them, inviting them to tell their stories.

The viewer thus knows the story of the protagonists in a story told in the first person, spontaneous, authentic and fresh.
