LA MEGLIO GIOVENTU'

Plot:
La meglio giovent¨ is the story of an Italian family from the end of the ’60s till today. It revolves around two brothers, Nicola and Matteo. In youth, they share the same dreams, hopes, readings, and friends, until one day they meet a psychically disturbed girl, Giorgia, who diverts their destinies: Nicola decides to become a psychiatrist, while Matteo drops-out of university and becomes a policeman. Angelo, their father, is a warm husband and parent, although his exuberance is lived by the family with a certain tolerance, while Adriana, their mother, is a modern and irreproacha ble teacher, who loves her students just like her own children. Then comes Giovanna, the older daughter, who becomes a judge at a young age, and Francesca, the smallest, who marries Nicola’s best friend, Carlo, destined to an important role in the Banca d’Italia and – for this reason – a target of terrorism during the so-called “leaded years” (of terrorism) in Italy. So, this is the family. But there is also Giulia, the core of Nicola’s love life, who gives birth to Sara and Mirella, who in different times and ways, cross the destinies of Matteo and Nicola. Through this small nucleus of characters, crucial moments, facts and places of Italian history relive once again: from the flood of Florence, to the mafia in Sicily; to the great soccer games Italy-Korea, and Italy-Germany of the World Championship, to the songs of an era; from the working Turin of the ’70s, to the working Milan of the ’80s; from the youth battles against terrorism, all the way to the crisis of the ’90s, and the attempt of re-building and re-inventing a modern country. Without knowing it, our characters will follow their passions stumbling over their own stories and history; they’ll grow up, hurt themselves, and start all over again. Like we all do. La meglio giovent¨ – the title of a poetry collection by Pasolini but also the name of an old-time song of the Alpine army – is the portrait of a generation that through its contradictions and bewilderments, at times na´ve and at times violent, with a strong and at times off-key voice, tried to never give up to the world as it was, but to change things, in order to leave this world a little better than how it was found.
