Synopsis

The four part television documentary Italian Miracle recounts a decade of Italian history in the twentieth century, using 16 Italian documentaries made between 1957 and 1967 from nine directors of a major period in film set between the 1950s and 1960s.

Many of these authors made brief incursions into documentary film early in their cinematic careers before going on to the fiction films which brought them later national and international fame. We are talking about:
Bernardo Bertolucci , Marco Bellocchio, Francesco Maselli, Florestano Vancini, Ennio Lorenzini, Giuseppe Ferrara, Piero Nelli, Giuseppe Taffarel e Luigi Di Gianni.

The repertoire of documentaries is the core of the film: selected and used as abstracts, instruments and direct evidence of filmmakers in a special period of history. The documentaries are of different genres and formats: color and black and white, silent and sound, intact or damaged or poorly maintained.
