Ciao is a film made in collaboration by Eddie Peake and Paul Simon Richards in 2010. It uses choreographed dance sequences to represent memories of formative experiences of both Peake and Richards surrounding the Italia 90 World Cup. It was first shown at Yes Way in 2010.

Both Peake and Richards seek to create a tableau that stands simultaneously for history as a burden and as something to be celebrated.
