Cinecittà, the “city of film” on the Tiber River, produced over 300 films for Mussolini and gave the people a galaxy of film stars. This documentary combines historical facts with fictional testimony by acting icons to conjure up an image of the Italian factory of dreams as a product of propaganda and capital, as well as reveals the relationship between fascism and Hollywood.


Marco Spagnoli (1970) is an Italian documentary filmmaker, screenwriter, film critic, and journalist. His work reveals the history of Italian cinema in the broader social context.
