L'Italia s'è desta [Italy has Arisen]
Written and directed by Rosario Mastrota
Produced by Compagnia Ragli
Starring Dalila Desirée Cozzolino
L'Italia s'è desta tells the story of Carletta, a Shakespearean village fool, who witnesses the kidnapping by the Calabrese mafia - 'ndrangheta - of the Italian national soccer team. The army, politicians and journalists, too busy creating a media storm around the event, and blinded by the magnitude of the news, don't notice her. She's the only person who knows where the team is hidden - but nobody believes her. The show's title is a quote from the Italian national hymn.
