Filming is now underway for a documentary “La provincia di Lucca nella Grande Guerra” – “The province of Lucca during the Great War ” which should be screened to the public some time in 2018.
The film which is supported and promoted by the Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca Foundation will be featuring the reality of the Barga area of those years (such as the nascent SMI and the newspaper “La Corsonna”) and will also include well known people from Barga during those times including Leo Giuliani and Johnny Moscardini but for the moment the film troupe were in Barga at the Villa Stefani in Barga Vecchia with the actors Giovanni Agresti, Roberto Bianchi, Bruno Giannoni, Giuliano Massei, Luciano Nelli and Giuseppe Villani – all strictly dressed in World War I uniforms.
The filming was made possible thanks to the kindness and availability of Mrs. Lucia Stefani, owner of the Villa. (There will be an interview with her later on this month.)
