This award-winning film by Marcel Meili and Christoph Schaub tells the story of 'Il Girasole', the rotating modernist house built into the Po Valley hillside in northern Italy.  Affectionately termed 'The Sunflower', the house was built in the 1930s by architects Angelo Invernizzi and Ettore Fagiuoli, with the help of their artist, sculptor, designer and architect friends.
