- The Vallelunga racing circuit is being used as the set for the new film by Matteo Rovere, which focuses on the world of racing cars
Matteo Rovere is back behind the camera, following 2011’s Drifters [+see also:

film profile] and starring Stefano Accorsi, is produced by Domenico Procacci, of Fandango, together with Rai Cinema.
Several scenes in the film are set during certain rounds of the ACI-CSAI 2014 Italian Gran Turismo Championship, thus seeing the involvement of the actual teams taking part in the competition. On 13 and 14 September, the film crew will be hosted by the Vallelunga racing circuit, one leg of the Gran Turismo championship.
Italian Race was written by Matteo Rovere, Filippo Gravino and Francesca Manieri. The DoP is Michele D'Attanasio, and editing will be entrusted to Gianni Vezzosi, while set design is by Alessandro Vannucci, costumes by Cristina La Parola and sound by Angelo Bonanni.
