Gigì - An Italian in Nottingham deals with a young composer coming from Italy experiencing the English University, its ways, its girls, the general environment, finding out his own illusions struggling for staying alive. In the first part, there’s a focus on the drinking culture and clubbing, especially on the lack of honesty and frankness between people, including strange ways of chatting girls up, ways which I describe from my outcast position while I am trying to integrate within these manners, hating myself for failing and even attempting to suicide because of it. The title An Italian in Nottingham says already everything, for it enlightens comically the absurdity of the story since the very start. On the other hand, the second part is characterized by a stronger and grown attitude toward issues and life, flowing into a romantic and troubled love story ending in an ambiguous way with Gigì, a Chinese girl studying in Nottingham for few months.
