For Lucio

Per Lucio

23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

A visual and sonorous journey into the poetic and irreverent imagery of the Italian singer Lucio Dalla. The film mixes biography and history, reality and imagination, as portrayed by the found footage, both public and private, official and amateur. Here, lyrics and music illustrate an underground and nuanced Italy, a free narration of the country’s history through a series of tragic events and the economic boom. This is the Italy of the underdogs and the marginalized: Dalla’s Italy.
