"The Italian Jew of Alexandria", try to condense into 36 minutes, the dense artistic career of the famous painter who was born in Alexandria of Egypt born on 17 May 1933 by the family of Sephardic origin from Livorno. Daniel Schinasi now share his time between the French Riviera and the Tuscan countryside.The documentary begins in the spring of 2009, when the municipality of Cascina, near Pisa, commissioned the "Maestro" Schinasi a series of paintings to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the invention of Galileo's telescope. The artist leaves Nice at the time of the Casino of the Earth to begin the work. As he works, the artist confesses to the camera, as reflected in the mirror of the canvas. Talk to friends , with his wife, with himself. The memories of a life emerge gradually and the viewer discovers that there are many things that he draws from his past and pours into his work. The shapes and colors are born and develop themselves from the memories , the painful exile from his native land of Egypt still burns and moves the soul of the artist. So we find out how he built the style that distinguishes him today, and we understand how to perform such a task, it is necessary to take stock of a life that, in his case, he has always been a challenge .

Throughout the visit of Daniel Schinasi in Tirana, a young team of Albanians film-makers will film a short documentary.
