free admission subject to availability

The story of the activist who has always fought for the recognition of civil rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.

With a light tone and never-before-seen documentary material, the biopic reconstructs more than 30 years of political history. It bears witness to a challenging and gentle struggle in the name of dignity and equality. It is also a sentimental journey along the places of his life: from his birthplace in the country to the university, from the old headquarters of disappeared parties to parliament, passing through the streets and squares of Gay Pride, from Rome to New York.
