Cinema Vitti

L'Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, 2002


Mario Tronco is a musician living in Rome who wants to revive the run-down Apollo Theatre in his neighborhood of Piazza Vittorio. His big idea is to tap the talents of foreign musicians playing in the streets and recruit them into a multi-cultural band to perform onstage. This uplifting musical documentary follows Tronco as he organizes his "orchestra" and then takes the group on tour in Italy, challenging the government's anti-immigration policies while making some beautiful music.


This film is in Italian with English subtitles.
