Nilde Iotti Il tempo delle Donne - Biografilm Festival



Nilde Iotti Il tempo delle Donne - Biografilm Festival

On the occasion of March 8- International Women Day, the second screening of the Biografilm Festival is dedicated to Nilde Iotti (1920-1999). Considered by many as a founding mother of the Italian Republic and perhaps ‘the best president Italy never had’, Iotti was a member of the committee that drafted the core of the country’s new constitution in 1946. She was the first woman ever to become President of the Chamber of Deputies, an office she held for three consecutive legislatures from 1979 to 1992, becoming the longest-serving post-war President of the Chamber. 

Nilde Iotti Il tempo delle Donne by  Peter Marcias – Italia 2020

-- Thanks to archive material, reminiscences by those who knew her, and her own reflections vividly recited by actress Paola Cortellesi, the personal story and political career of Nilde Iotti transcends the biographical and touches the core of our own lives today - lives made better by Iotti's courage, which defied taboos and emancipated Italy's civil society. The inspiring story of Nilde Iotti belongs to us all. The film acquaints us with her nobility of spirit as well as the controversies surrounding this emblematic twentieth-century figure who did so much for women and the collectivity.

With Paola Cortellesi, Marisa Rodano, Giorgio Frasca Polara, Rosa Russo Iervolino, Luciana Castellina, Livia Turco, Giorgio Napolitano, Cecilia Mangini, Luisa Lama, Sergio Mattarella, Silvio Traversa, Piera Degli Esposti, Loretta Giaroni, Eletta Bertani, Ione Bartoli, Massimo Storchi, Daniela Ducato, Michela Murgia, Edda Billi, Elly Schlein, Marwa Mahmoud.
