Sveglia! Sveglia!

Rome, Italy: An interview to our friends and brilliant filmmakers

Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi in front of the Pantheon. This square was one of the

98 “piazze” all over Italy crowed with people screaming “Wake up! Wake up Italy!”

and asking that the bill on the reform of the rights for common law marriage and

same sex marriage become effective, after eight years of fighting for it.

In 2008, Luca and Gustav presented this issue in their very first “docu-film” Suddenly Last

Winter (Improvvisamente l’inverno scorso). Other works, internationally awarded in

film festivals, followed: Italy Love it, or Leave it (2011), and What Is Left? (2013).

It's always interesting to see the push for change in Italy. We hope you watch this video and let us know what you think. Or if you have any questions maybe we can hlep.
