The Shadow of the Day - Set in the picturesque provincial town Ascoli Piceno in central Italy, The Shadow of the Day is a dramatic, heart-affecting love story set in the late 1930's. Luciano, a wounded World War I veteran and a sympathizer of fascism, runs a classy restaurant overlooking the town’s ancient square. He believes he can live his life according to his own set of rules. In his own bubble, he observes the world through the window of his pleasant restaurant. One day, Anna appears, looking for work. A young woman with a dangerous secret is hired for a job in the restaurant. Slowly, affection creeps in between the two, and among the many dangers Luciano now faces, including the onset of WWII, there is the greatest of all: love. Featuring an ensemble cast including Lino Musella (The Hand of God) and Vincenzo Nemolato (Gomorrah), Giuseppe Piccioni’s thoughtful melodrama reflects on fascism and the pre-war atmosphere of control and isolation.
