In 2018, Italian fashion brand Marni invited Ariel Costa to create an animated film promoting the launch of their new flagship store in Rome. Ariel responded with "Finding Rome"—an elegent and surrealistic story following a stylized character in search of the Marni store. The video is all black and white with only a few hints of color at the end. And the rhythym, geometry, and optical illusions throughout pulse with adventurous charm.
