We are extremely excited for the upcoming release of the film Fedeli d'Amore, produced by Teatro delle Albe (Ravenna) with our support.

The film Fedeli d'Amore, Marco Martinelli's fourth cinematographic work, is a fundamental stage of his itinerary on Dante, on the occasion of the seven hundredth anniversary of the death of the Great Poet. Dedicated to the potential connection between Dante and the Sufi circles of the Islamic world, it is mainly focused on the extraordinary vocal research of Ermanna Montanari (winner of four Ubu Prizes), with electroacoustic music by Luigi Ceccarelli.

The filming took place in Ravenna, between the interiors of Dante's era and the exteriors of the valleys and the city that welcomed the Poet in his latest years, when he completed the writing of the Comedy.
