Who can forget Anna Magnani's face when she fell in “Rome, Open City”?

Based on an unseen and private archival material, from the collections of the Institute Luce and the RAI, to extracts of tv shows, interviews with the greatest stars of the time, and of course some of her outstanding films, this documentary plunges us into the golden age of Italian cinema. And retraces the career of an exceptional actress, who has marked the history of cinema.
