It was held at the archaeological site of Broglio, in Trebisacceat the end of filming, the press conference on the set of the film DON CHISCIOTTE. Produced by Paola Columba for Baby Films, DON CHIXOTE was made with the support of the Ministry of Culture, the Calabria Film Commission Foundation and the Lucana Film Commission. The film was shot in the Upper Ionian area of ​​Cosenza, for four weeks, in a spectacular and mysterious territory, among gullies, medieval castles, rivers and pristine beaches, in the municipalities of Trebisacce, Rocca Imperiale, Oriolo Calabro, Roseto Capo Spulico and San Lorenzo Bellizzi. A work with a quality cast, with Alessio Boni who played the role of Don Quixote, Fiorenzo Mattu (Sancio Panza), Angela Molina (Housekeeper), Marcello Fonte (Garzone), Galatea Ranzi (Mother Duchess), Carlo De Ruggieri ( Curated).

This is the comment of the Extraordinary Commissioner of the Calabria Film Commission Anton Giulio Grande: “It is a work of international literary origin, capable of evoking the images of a great work of absolute value. It is a film from which we expect a lot, also from the point of view of the photographic rendering of our landscapes, of their light which stories like Don Quixote illuminate even more. Country and places to be discovered for cinema and tourism, which a beautiful photograph makes even more fascinating and mysterious, capable of transmitting even clearer dimensions than the real ones on the screen. And then a top-notch cast. The signature of Alessio Boni, who lends his acting talent to the service of this film, makes us proud and gratifies the work for our territory. On stage is the Upper Ionian Cosenza area – continues Grande – with its unique images, full of charm, without forgetting the Calabrian actors and workers involved in this project who, after the first two weeks of filming in Basilicata, a nearby and contiguous region also on a landscape level, it finds its narrative and landscape heart in Calabria. We cultivate good neighborly relations with the Lucana Film Commission, for a strong and communicative South in the national audiovisual system”.

To record the declaration of Margherita Romaniellopresident of the Lucana Film Commission: “We are happy to share with you about the film based on the play by the Lucanian playwright and director Gerardo Guerrieri” – Calabria underlines the work President of the Lucana Film Commission – I am sure that this work will strengthen the bond between Lucana and the Calabria Film Commission, enhancing the beauty of our territories and strengthening the trend of the highest level of audiovisual production of the two regions”. “This film – also declared the LFC councilor, Francesco Porcari, present in Trebisacce – perfectly represents one of the objectives we are pursuing: broadening horizons with the other southern regions. We therefore welcome productions to share and new collaborations with other Film Commissions, all for the benefit of our open-air sets and the local workers that we are also training thanks to an agreement with Cinecittà.”

“The places where I shot the film – underlined the director Fabio Segatori – the Castle of Oriolo, Roseto Capo Spulico, Rocca Imperiale, Palazzo Pignatelli, San Lorenzo Bellizzi, the beaches and the mysterious and uncontaminated views, are the backdrop to this moral fable. Cervantes’ Don Quixote is part of our imagination, and I tell it as a crossing of Mediterranean landscapes, with the breath and sounds of a Southern Mediterranean”. The work of the actor Alessio Boni, the protagonist of the film, was much appreciated as he intended to salute the Calabrian territory that hosted him in recent weeks in the guise of a figure who has outlined suggestions and stories over the centuries. “Between the shores of its two seas, in Calabria – declared Alessio Boni – I discovered a nature and a hospitality that perfectly matched the state of mind of my character and the spirit of my being. A nice gift. Thank you”.
