IL FARE POLITICA. Chronicle of the Red Tuscany (1982 - 2004)

Within the Documentary of the Month cycle, the University Venue in Alicante projects on October 3, at 20.00 and 22.00h the film IL FARE POLITICA. Chronicle of the Red Tuscany (1982 - 2004). From 1982 until 2004, director Hugues Le Paige filmed members of the Italian Communist Party in Mercatale, a town in Toscany, in order to see their social and political evolution. The documentary, which took part in numerous festivals, received the 2005 Silver Medal at the International Grand Prix for Documentaries in Monte Carlo – URTI.

According to Le Paige, ‘I met Fabiala, Carlo, Claudio and Vincenzo in Mercatale in 1982. They were all between 25 and 45, jovial militant members of the Italian Communist Party, that strange party which made history and became their school and their family. Every two or three years, for over two decades, I filmed in Mercatale’.

The resulting film shows a panorama of personal and political development in a rural environment; these stories about both individuals and history cover a quarter of a century whose understanding offers key answers to today’s issues: what has become of those world-changing projects in Berlusconi’s Italy? And an even more general question: what can politics still do?
