MOKA NOIR: NO MORE COFFEE IN OMEGNA

by Erik Bernasconi

black / white 93', 2019

coproduction with RSI Radiotelevisione Svizzera

In the Italian town Omegna an unusual industrial center was born in the twentieth century: the so-called “houseware district”. The sister companies like Bialetti, Alessi and Piazza exploited the post-war economic boom and became known worldwide. Following economic crises, generational changes, globalisation, relocations, and the workers’ struggles, the golden years ended drastically leaving an immense void not only in the abandoned establishments but also in the hearts of the local population.
