Due piccoli italiani

Friday 22 March – h 19.00 • Cinema Marconi


Salvatore works as a cleaning man in a psychiatric clinic in which Felice is hospitalized. Felice is a patient that only speaks with Salvatore. After an accident involving them, the two men run away and start a travel through Europe, arriving firstly to Rotterdam and then to Iceland. After many misfortunes, and with the help of the extravagant and generous Anke, they will overcome their fears and inhibitions, overwhelmed by a life that is so different from the monotone and resigned one they were used to. They’ll discover a new joy for being alive and to feel love and affection. A praise for freedom without any limitation or prejudice.
