So beautiful is not a documentary or an inquiry, but an attempt to show the progression of the italian woman in the last century using images. Historical documents from the Luce archive, fragments of film, popular songs and inteviews make up the network used to describe this great female adventure which over one hundred years has redesigned it’s own images and roles among family and society.
