by Pietro Marcello, the only Italian film that competed for the Golden Leopard at this year’s Locarno Film Festival.

Last but not least is Exit/Entrance or Trasumanar, the debut short film of Federica Foglia (in the Short Cuts section). The film, which tells the story of an immigrant artist who wanders the streets of the town he lives in, is an ode to our current era of constant migration, touching on nostalgia and the desire to belong. 

The selected films, in agreement with the president of the Toronto Film Festival, Piers Handling, were chosen by the Istituto Luce Cinecittà, which will take care of the artistic delegation. Organising the Italian events at the festival and looking after the Italian producers will be Ice Toronto.
