Conceived at the same time as an architectural study and a detective story, Due was shot in Milano 2, a residential area located just outside Milano.
Built as a utopian city by Silvio Berlusconi between 1970 and 1979, Milano 2 was his first ambitious real estate project. In Milano 2 the first private Italian TV channel was born, and became the bridgehead of the media and, later, political empire of Berlusconi.
Milano 2, which may now seem at first sight an anonymous peripheral neighbourhood, has functioned as a laboratory for a way-of-life that, in the decades of the “Berlusconismo”, was spread nationally and turned Italian culture upside down.
The film includes an interview with Enrico Hoffer, the architect that designed the neighbourhood, and fragments from a 1974 publicity brochure advertising the real estate project.
