Bella Vita


Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of Western Civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers and kings.

Preserved like a Roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to explore a culture where old-world-convention and traditional craftsmanship have matured into a modern surf lifestyle and destination.

Filmmaker Jason Baffa chronicles Chris and his friends Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lyndsey Hill, Conner and Parker Coffin and Italian stand-outs Alessandro Ponzanell and Leonardo Fioravanti as they explore the burgeoning new surf culture blossoming among the Mediterranean's oldest and cherished traditions.

A visual epic captured in stunning 35mm, "Bella Vita" is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, seeped in culture, tradition, and passion - where family comes first.
