An original genre
"The musical, they continue, has allowed us to go over the lines by addressing deep and important themes such as love and death, keeping a light and spectacular tone.
We do not aim to realism, but to the likelihood. To believe in what we tell, we like to take real characters that we have met in real life to put them in the imaginative frame of an exaggerated story.
The city of Naples has been our inspiration and a personal revival of its most dense and popular artistic form, the sceneggiata, the result.
Our Naples is not just the dark and desperate city that is recently talked about in cinema or TV, but also a Naples who, despite all the problems, stimulates with its cultural ferment and inspires with its humanity. "
The film is played by Giampaolo Morelli, Serena Rossi, Claudia Gerini, Carlo Buccirosso, Raiz (Gennaro Della Volpe), Franco Ricciardi, Antonio Buonomo.
