Director Montesanto: "A suitcase full of stories and emotions"

26-10-2016 by redazione

The filming of the documentary film "Italian in Kenya" has ended. It's a short feature commissioned by the Italian Foreign Ministry, through the Italian Institute of Culture in Nairobi, as part of the week of Italian language in the world. The brainchild of director Francesca Church, the director Giampaolo Montesanto, author of the very interesting "Italians in Eritrea", presented in Malindi and Nairobi in recent weeks, has interviewed several people who have helped write the history of the presence of our countrymen in Kenya.
Montesanto speaks to us from Sicily, his homeland, where he began to write the script of the documentary film: "I brought home from Malindi and Nairobi, a loaded suitcase full of stories and unique emotions, with beautiful frescoes and interesting characters - reveals filmmaker who divides his time between Sicily and Massawa, Eritrea - all these stories will help me to find the common thread of the story to tell. "
History that is intertwined not only with the events of Kenya since its independence in 1963 onwards, but also with Italian history since the scientist Luigi Broglio and the creation of the space station to San Marco Ngomeni only by farmisti and entrepreneurs Nairobi and artist Armando Tanzini. In addition to the stories of the Freddie Curatolo writer.
It will take at least six months before you see the film mounted and almost certainly in 2017 there will be the release of the documentary film and the first vision in Nairobi, Malindi and other cities of Kenya and Italy.
"Apart from the many events that can be organized in circumstances such as this - explains the director of the IIC Francesca Church - what we did with the Montesanto director is something that will always remain, a testimony in images and words as our presence Kenya, and therefore our language, art and professionalism, they have given a lot to this country, leaving fundamental and indelible traces. "
