Donne nel mito: Anna Magnani a Hollywood recounts the American period of the great actor’s career through the words of her son Luca, of the most important of Italian press agents Enrico Lucherini, of Anna Magnani’s biographer Matilde Hockhofler and of Caterina D’Amico, daughter of the legendary screenwriter Suso Cecchi D’ Amico, a close friend of Anna Magnani’s. The film produced for the series Donne nel mito explores, for the first time, the relationship between Magnani and her great friend Tennessee Williams, one of the most famous dramatists in the history of literature who wrote some of his best-loved plays specially for her.
