Synopsis

A new tribute to Fabrizio De André. The musical and personal homage paid by a son to the political, artistic and human legacy of a great poet, testimony to a relationship of deep love. Cristiano De André proposed to the Italian public again, on a tour that lasted two years, the concept album Storia di un impiegato, a masterpiece that is more topical than ever, written by De André in 1973 with Giuseppe Bentivoglio and Nicola Piovani. The film, by Roberta Lena, is a musical and visual journey through those live concerts, images of social struggles, historical memories, family memories and film clips never seen before. A tangle of stories in which aspirations and yearnings for freedom on the part of the white-collar worker are intertwined with those of Cristiano’s personal and musical life in a discourse on our contemporary world. Sardinia, rather than a backdrop, is the place to which he has given his heart and where the memories of the past and the voices of the present emerge. A sort of biography, viewed through the special relationship between father and son, an account of shared feelings leading up to a total identification and symbiosis, to a passing of the torch, an inheritance of the mantle.

Director’s Statement

When I was entrusted with the theatrical direction of the rock opera Storia di un impiegato in 2018 I was made aware of the contemporary force of the lyrics on the album. The story is a metaphor for the society of the time, but it seems to be an admonition to stay human, one that is valid and necessary in our own day too. Fabrizio said: “You didn’t stop the wind / you just wasted its time.” In the narrative parable of the white-collar worker, which I have often mixed metaphorically with Cristiano’s own life, are comprised conflicts and resolutions of human nature and our society. Cristiano De André is the heir to this legacy and in this handing down of the baton is implicit that relationship between father and son in which we can all see our reflection.
