PIAZZA FONTANA: THE ITALIAN CONSPIRACY [Romanzo di una strage]
Marco Tullio Giordana (THE BEST OF YOUTH) returns with this engrossing tale of terrorism, conspiracy and deceit, based on actual events. A bomb goes off at a Milan bank in December, 1969, killing 17 and wounding 88. Detective Luigi Calabresi (Valerio Mastandrea) heads up the investigation of the crime, which many want to pin on the anarchist left. Unconvinced, Calabresi wants to investigate the shadowy organizations on the neo-fascist right, including possible CIA connections. But after a key suspect meets an untimely death, the clock starts ticking for Calabresi. Official Selection, 2012 Karlovy Vary, Telluride Film Festivals.
