People of Love and Rage

Opened in the early 1980s in the southern suburbs of Rome, “Corviale” is the largest residential building in Europe, hosting some 1,200 apartments and more than 8,000 people within a total length of one kilometer. Corviale is a public housing project inspired by Le Corbusier and the principles of the “Ideal City”, yet it failed “even before opening” and has always been plagued by intense criminality and lack of vision.

Resident friends Massimo, a former drug-addict and former criminal; and Alessandro, an artist, decide to set up an association for “handcraft and arts” to provide alternatives for youngsters and unemployed in the area. Their dream must face personal and public challenges, with outbreaks of joy and desperation.
