In the summer of 1974, Elsa Morante's novel La Storia sparked a long debate that divided public opinion. For Natalia Ginzburg “the finest novel of this century,” the story of ordinary people during World War II and the years immediately following touched raw nerves for the society and culture of the time, and its impact went far beyond the literary scene alone.
Director Silvia Luzi portrays an extraordinary writer and allows us to rediscover one of the masterpieces of 20th-century literature. A new look at a particularly fierce era in Italian history, which is also important for understanding our times.
