Giorgio Ambrosoli: The Price of Courage

(Giorgio Ambrosoli: Il Prezzo del Coraggio)

Forty years after his assassination, the bourgeois hero’s story is told from the point of view of his closest collaborator, Marshal Silvio Novembre.

Forty years after the assassination of the “bourgeois hero” Giorgio Ambrosoli, the docu-fiction tells the exemplary story of a man who was at the same time normal and heroic, who loved his family and his job, who believed in the importance of abiding by the law and the value of responsibility, to the point where he chose to put these before his personal safety. The story is told from the point of view of Ambrosoli’s closest collaborator, Marshal Silvio Novembre. The OffCamera narration of Marshal holds together the fictionalized reenactments and the documentary.
