Una storia di notte (I 4 cantoni)

Direction: Luigi Petrini

The Committee, having viewed the film, refuses to authorize it, as it considers the theme “detrimental to the national dignity”. The production company appeals against this decision, and obtains authorization with a viewing prohibition for minors under the age of 18 after cutting two scenes. After the first screening in a cinema in Rome, a change of the title is requested and the definitive title Una storia di notte (“A story of night”) is authorized. In the attached video you can see the film cuts established by the Review Committee and preserved by the Cineteca Nazionale (Rome).
