Barilla is repositioning itself with a global brand campaign from Publicis Italy that shows the true value of preparing a dish of pasta for someone: a sign of love to express what we cannot say with words.

Hard-to-pronounce statements like “I love you,” “I missed you” or “Sorry, it’s my fault” can be demonstrated with a dish of pasta.

The new campaign will be launched in 40 countries and brings together classical stories with a highly contemporary flavor. The relationships show today’s families, each with its own distinctive character, difficulties and diversity. The new payoff is “Barilla. A sign of love” and it will be exactly these signs that will let the protagonists of the stories find each other, communicate and feel a little bit closer.  

Saverio Costanzo directed this film, “A Sign of Love,” via BRW Filmland. Costanzo is known to the public for having directed the Italian-American TV series My Brilliant Friend and for the film The Solitude of Prime Numbers, for which he was nominated for a David di Donatello Award. To enhance the emotional impact of the Barilla film, the music of “Beautiful that Way” by Noa was chosen as a reinterpretation of the soundtrack of the Oscar-winning film La Vita è Bella.
