"It's a comedy that's also a noir," states the director who co-wrote the screenplay with Francesca Archibugi and Francesco Piccolo. "A well-known film producer is found dead in the river Tiber in Rome and the main suspects are three young aspiring writers. One night, by order of the carabinieri, they must retrace their tremendous, sentimental and ironic journey in the splendour and misery of the last glorious season of Italian cinema."

The cast also includes many great supporting roles, such as Giancarlo Giannini, Roberto Herlitzka,  Paolo Bonacelli, Ornella Muti, Marina Rocco, Andrea Roncato, Giulio Scarpati, Emanuele Salce, Giulio Berruti, Ludovica Modugno, Ferruccio Soleri, Simona Marchini and many others.

Notti Magiche was produced by Marco Belardi for Lotus Production, a company belonging to the Leone Film Group, along with Rai Cinema, and will be released in Italian cinemas in 2018, distributed by 01 Distribution.
