Rome, March 17, 2023 – Presented as a world premiere at the 73rd. Berlin International Film Festival, Le Mura di Bergamo by Stefano Savona will be available from March 23 in movie theaters throughout Italy. The film, produced by Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment with Rai Cinema, is distributed by Fandango.
The film also involved Danny Biancardi, Sebastiano Caceffo, Alessandro Drudi, Silvia Miola, Virginia Nardelli, Benedetta Valabrega, and Marta Violante and chronicles the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, particularly in Bergamo, the city symbolic of the first months of the contagion.
Through unpublished images and stories from witnesses who experienced that dramatic period firsthand, the docufilm traces the history of Bergamo and the courage of its inhabitants.
“We are very proud to have contributed to the making of this film, which tells a complex page of our recent history.” Andrea Iervolino, CEO of Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment, said. “Thanks to the language of Stefano Savona, one of the excellences of cinema in our country, we were able to bring the story of this city to the big screen, and by participating in the Berlin International Film Festival, we were able to tell the strength of our country around the world.”
Le Mura di Bergamo is a film that recounts the first months of the pandemic and makes connections between memory and the future, to accompany this collective, along the first stages of the patient work of recomposing the intimate, familial and social fabric that the pandemic has torn apart.
The protagonist of this story is the city, a social body that, like any living organism, consists first and foremost of the infinite connections between its parts. The words, looks, gestures, and silences that this narrative bears witness to are an attempt to account for some of these connections, with the hope that, by making them visible, the cinematic narrative can help consolidate them.
