Miraggi di pianura is a road movie shot along the Via Emilia.

The main characters of the film are the monuments standing out against the roundabouts placed on the main roads in the Po Valley, some all-round mirages appearing in front of the tired eyes of the car drivers who find themselves going through an endlessly industrialized landscape. These works are some kind of outlying, naive and surprising drive-in of the arts where cars are moving, moreover, hence their looking time is short, at times very short.

Depending on the exit turn we have to take, they can even embody a dreamlike trait, and we ask ourselves, incredulous: did I just see what I saw?
