Sergiomota submitted a visual journey in TUSCANY Through ART. “Much more than an aesthetically stunning adventure in Italy, the video takes viewers on a journey across the masterpieces from Friedrich, Dalí and Van Gogh, catching glimpses of European art history and celebrating the beauty of humanity,” the two companies announced.

“The whole video is built with three pillars: Art, Color and the Artists,” added Sergiomota. “I want to show how various artists create a fantasy world full of color through the emblematic landscapes of Tuscany.”
