A journey through the poetics of Massimo Troisi: his commitment to expression, the rigour of his working method and his daring forward-looking entrepreneurial vision. A study that pursues what has never been seen and never been revealed about Massimo, the director and producer. A journey that relies on Massimo Troisi’s own voice to tell the story of his unique approach to the art of cinema.

Director’s statement
In 2010 I read the thesis on Massimo Troisi’s cinema by Antonella Coluccia, with an audio interview with the author. This discovery sparked the idea to construct a “journey” through the artistic sensibility of Massimo. The voice of the actor, director and producer represents the key to the story to which I sought to give a particular visual form. To bring his words to “life” and make them interact most effectively with the other accounts, I supported them with a sequence of unpublished photographs taken on sets and provided by the Troisi family and the archives of Mario Tursi.
