In the Casa del Popolo (House of the People) in Alfonsine on the evening of 31 December 1955, comrades dance in anticipation of the New Year. Enzo Pasi with his 8mm camera and a powerful spotlight to illuminate the scene cannot miss these moments. The People's House was put up stone by stone thanks to a collective effort, which saw the commitment of everyone and is the symbol of a future that first has to be dreamt and then built. It is also an important place for socialising and has been nicknamed the Kremlin, but it closes early and only exceptionally tonight will it be open until late at night. Everyone dances happily and hopefully in what looks like a human wave in the film 8mm. No one can know that the year to come, 1956, will bring the first cracks in the communist faith, with the events in Hungary, and that from then on illusions and falls will follow one after the other without stopping until all the walls come tumbling down. Even those of the People's House, which will be torn down in 1991. Enzo Pasi will film the demolition as if it were a funeral, but this time with a video camera. It will be an entirely different image.
