Three video lessons on figures essential to the film industry, as described directly by the protagonists of Italian film.
Silvia Scola, who studied under Age and Ettore Scola, is a screenwriter and has worked on films such as ‘La cena’ (1998), ‘Concorrenza sleale’ (2000), ‘I Mostri Oggi’ (2008), ‘Che strano chiamarsi Federico!’ (2013), ‘Ridendo e scherzando’ (2015). In her video-lesson, she talks about the main areas of the work of a screenwriter in its main phases, focusing in particular on her specialist genre: documentary films.

Corrado Trionfera has held various roles in production, first with Esse Cinematografica and then with Lux Vide. The most recent include: “A un passo dal cielo” and “I Medici, nel nome della famiglia”. In his video-lesson, Trionfera explains the important role played by production, made up of different professional figures though in very close and mutual collaboration.

Piero Cannizzaro is a director who specialises in documentary films. He has made documentaries for Rai and Arté dealing with various themes: from the southern Italy of the Taranta (‘La notte della Taranta e dintorni’, 2004 and ‘Ritorno a Kurumuny’, 2003) to the dramatic life of a man in prison who devotes himself to poetry and painting (‘Ossigeno’, 2012). In his video-lesson, Cannizzaro talks about the director’s choices and how they have to be adapted each time to the chosen subject.
