Lucca was a city of many towers in the 13th century, giving rise to many apocryphal legends and extended mythologies of defence and attack, greed and avarice, disgrace and shame and bravery, love and lust and death. The English filmmaker Peter Greenaway with his Italian collaborators, the choreographer Roberto Castello and the composer Marco Robino, was excited about a Lucca commission to turn these myths into dramatic cinematic presentations using contemporary digital vocabularies of image and text. This book tells by images fourteen of these stories that were projected onto the newly refurbished façade of the Church of San Francesco in Lucca.
