Naturally Risen - Una Pizza Napoletana Short Documentary Video
For all the pizza guys/gals...
Naturally Risen, is a short film documenting the rhythm of the process of noted pizzaiola Anthony Mangieri. Anthony owned and operated Una Pizza Napoletana in the East Village of New York City from 2004 until 2009. The film takes a decided non-verbal, intimate approach, in the tradition of a surf video – allowing Mangieri's disciplined movements to speak for themself. Legendary skateboarder and musician Tommy Guerrero, provides the score. Directed by Michael Evans
A lot of new Neopolitan style pizza places opened up since but he was one of the first to bring back the tradition to NYC.. He recently closed and is planning to re-open in San Fran.
I had the pleasure of eating at UPN three times in 2007/08 and it was great.. wish I had been there more now that it closed.
This video really shows the artistry that goes into pizza.
