Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2012.
Summary This Machiavellian drama, based on a book by Paolo Cucchiarelli dissects the Piazza Fontana bombing, highlighting the manipulations and tragic consequences of the event and subsequent investigations. An explosion at the Banca Nazionale dell’Agricoltura in Milan in 1969 resulted in 17 deaths and injured dozens more. The protests sweeping Europe and the fear of communism led the police to focus their investigations on anarchist groups. But the Police Commissioner is convinced it’s not that simple. When known non-violent protestor Giuseppe Pinelli dies in police custody, Calabresi’s enquiries reveal a conspiracy to discredit the Left by foreign and state governments, the police, the secret service through to neo-fascists. Intriguingly complicated and politically nuanced, PIAZZA FONTANA is an ever-twisting conspiracy of lies, intrigue and dirty politics. The meticulously staged real life story is both enthralling and gripping. Nominated for the Best Film, Best Actor and Best Screenplay Awards at the **Italian Golden Globes.** *"A studious re-creation, incorporating scenes of real power..." - Jay Weissberg, **Variety***
