2017 – USA – Italian – 89 minutes

Directed by Jeff Malmberg (MARWENCOL), SPETTACOLO explores the hidden world of the Italian Tuscan village Monticciello. Integral to the on-going vitality of this medieval walled city is its yearly live theatre festival where the local villagers put on an original play. Ultimately each year’s theatrical piece is an act of self expression, where the town can be said truly to play itself and where the main characters boldly express their deepest emotions, hopes and fears. Told over the course of a year, this stunning film offers a rapturous journey from the Italy of yesterday to the Italy of today, with a future which is far from certain.
