MONTEGELATO is a montage film in VR, the first of its kind. Hundreds of cinematic sequences define a three-dimensional collage of the Monte Gelato waterfalls (Rome, Italy) as they have been filmed in more than 180 productions including films, TV series and commercials.

From peplum to western, from comedy to thriller, from science-fiction to erotica: sounds and videos expand in an immersive landscape that transports the Falls in time and space.

The artist

Davide Rapp (Verbania, Italy, 1980). An architect by training, in 2014 he participated in the 14th International Architecture Exhibition – Fundamentals (Venice Biennale) with “”Elements””, a 32-minute montage film describing the fundamental elements of architecture through a sequence of over 500 film clips.

His montage films and video essays have been screened in international museums and film festivals. The Milano Film Festival hosted his first retrospective in 2016 and the magazines Cahiers du Cinéma and Sight & Sound have included his montages among the most interesting video essays online. He is founder and creative director of the Milan-based creative agency ‘-orama’.
