These films are part of the on going gran_turismo project, that aims to explore some of the phenomena that surround modern mass tourism, focussing on rituals that reside in transient relationships between people and historical sites and objects. Gran_turismo constitutes a reflection on the meaning that repetitive tourist actions lend to worldwide known attractions. In removing the gestures from their original context, the action of consumption is made more apparent.
