An intimate, heartfelt, honest portrait of the great Ettore Scola, master of direction and father.

Ettore Scola: a name that certainly needs no introduction. Films like We All Loved Each Other So Much, Down and Dirty, A Special Day, La terrazza, The Family, How Strange to Be Named Federico – and the list goes on – have not only moved us, they have marked our imagination and contributed to creating a shared cultural identity.

But how much do we really know about their director, who many consider to be one of the greatest of the 20th century, not only in Italy? This book, published by Rizzoli, presents an unprecedented, intimate, heartfelt, honest portrait of him, drawn by two of the people who knew him best: his daughters Paola and Silvia.
