IT HAPPENED TOMORROW The Creation of Meaning

vitaleBy Guido Vitale*

A film about the Nazi massacres against civilian population in Italy – specifically about the slaughter of hundreds of women, children and elders in Sant’Anna di Stazzema in 1944 – has raised much interest during the sixty-seventh edition of the Locarno Film Festival, held this last August.
It is perhaps not by chance that this new film by Simone Rapisarda Casanova, “The creation of meaning”, was made by an Italian film director resident in Canada. Italians living abroad often remember with more clarity than those living in Italy the funding values of the Italian Republic and of democracy.
