LINE UP FALL 2014
A YOUNG POET a film by DAMIEN MANIVEL
WORLD PREMIERE â€“ LOCARNO 2014 â€“ FILMMAKERS OF THE PRESENT â€“ SPECIAL MENTION
Synopsis:According to an enquiry carried out by the Ministry of Defense, during the '60s in Friuli-Venezia Giulia about 102 square km (1.3 % of the whole regional territory) were occupied by military sites where more than 50% of the Italian Army was deployed. Almost 50% of the region has been influenced by the subsequent servitudes. A close network of barracks, powder magazins, training and aviation camps was spread over Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia, two neighbouring regions, as military strategy. Cities, towns, countryside, valleys, mountains, rivers and the sea represented the elements of a map: friulian landscape turned into a strategic landscape. In 1989, after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War, the geopolitical situation changed rapidly, therefore Italy abolished conscription. In 2004, also the eastern borders with Republic of Slovenia dissolved, a Country which had declared independence in 1991. Those historic changes had been followed by a decommission of the Italian Army System, which consequences in Friuli had assumed unique proportions.
