Venice exhibition, Rita Dalla Chiesa: “Fiction about my father blocked and the election campaign on the Lido”

(from the correspondent Ilaria Floris) The choice of presenting a documentary on the ‘March of Rome’ at the Venice Days at the Venice Film Festival, 20 days after the vote in Italy, “was in bad taste. Surely there were two weights and two measures. I had resigned myself to the block for the release of the fiction about my father because there was a law, and I am attentive to the rules, but then to see that at the Venice Film Festival they allow the presentation of a documentary like ‘Marcia su Rome ‘I find it at least unequal “. This is the outburst of Rita Dalla Chiesa who, to Adnkronos, entrusts her considerations in the light of the controversy over the presentation, at the Giornate degli Autori, of the docufilm ‘March on Rome’ by Irish director Mark Cousins, who expressed strong concerns about a possible victory of the center-right in the next elections. “I could say more but I have respect for an electoral campaign that must go ahead in a civilized way, I imposed it on myself – the Dalla Chiesa sinks – I don’t allow myself to judge the choices of the Venice Days of the Festival but I think it was a mistake . One thing is a fiction about a piece of history of our life, of Italian history, one thing this documentary. I too realized the enormity of the paradox “. The daughter of General Dalla Chiesa, who is a candidate in the next elections with Forza Italia, he then tells an eloquent episode: “Today I was at a ceremony in honor of my father. I am still in check of the people who are slaughtering every inch of my flesh, heart, brain, criticizing my choice of go into politics, that when they called me on stage to give me the award I was even afraid to go up and get this comic, and I said to my sister ‘you go’. But this thing has to stop “. Dalla Chiesa concludes with a reflection: “Maybe the rebellions sooner or later come from the people, if they see an electoral campaign that is not carried out in a fair, just, civil way. There have been too many mistakes”.
