Congratulations to Jordan, because, with a cast of great professionals and with the collaboration of leading scholars, he has made a film, which was needed and which I liked a lot, destined to leave a profound mark for a long time. ». «I am certain – added the mayor Succurro – that the film will project the Florense abbot, San Giovanni in Fiore and our territory into the world».
