This volume presents the world through children’s eyes thanks to two successful films of two important film directors: Gabriele Salvatores and Gianni Amelio…
This third booklet presents two films set in Sicily, where the world of the Mafia is “invisible,” but real and perceived in everyday life. I Cento Passi, directed by Marco Tullio Giordana, is a historical reconstruction of the period of the seventies with protagonist a generation full of dreams and ideals; Johnny Stecchino, directed by Roberto Benigni, tells the story of a naive school bus driver that unwittingly takes the place of a fierce Mafia repentant.
