festival & awards:

The history of the Feltrinelli publishing house is marked by the strong personality of its founder Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. A courageous editor who often chose the works to be published because of his political beliefs. During his whole life he was firm believer in the extreme left wing party, at the same time working to make this literature popular. In 1972 Feltrinelli dies whilst trying to blow up an electricity pylon. Using the testimony of great writers who remain loyal to the Publishing house, the director traces the profile of an exceptional character and unveils the love of words which was and still is the basis of Feltrinelli's literary production.
