ENI and Lanterne Volanti
Some time after the shoot we have received an email from the art director of this spot.
I know the lanterns from the spot we made in Rome for ENI (I am the Art Director) where we have used them. I live in Mallorca in the countryside and have thought to use your lanterns one special evening, for instance New Years Eve, think my 2 year old daughter will like them better than the usual fire crackers. Hope you will send me the same white ones as we used last time
p.s. at below link you can watch the spot of ENI with the lanterns, kind regards, Cesare Danese
