Perfect resistance

It has now decades that resistance is subjected to a constant scrutiny by historians, but also of journalists and collegers. And if once he could be provocative to make the fleas at the myth of the partisans and talk about civil war, putting on the same level the fighting factions, today a lot of this vulgate has become a substrate given almost for granted. The risk is that we forget, and the young generations never know how noble, pure and really up to his myth there was in the partisan struggle. In the seventieth anniversary of the liberation, Giovanni De Luna wanted to put a picture of the resistance that was blurred again. With great efficacy, De Luna has chosen a story, a place, some characters: a castle in Piedmont, a noble family who decides to help the partisans, the younger daughter, Isola lettle, who notes her terrible months on her diary But also wonderful in which communists and monarchists, aristocrats and peasants, boys to the first weapons and officers of the former regio army struggled, died, killed to save their homeland, their freedom, the future of a whole nation. Months in which, between the courtyard of his family villa and the mountains all, he truly formed that unity that gave rise to the myth of the resistance.
