The Resistance in Faenza

People, places, events.

A tale in two voices about the people and events that marked the history of the Resistance in and around Faenza. Beginning in 1943, after Italy's armistice with the Allies, partisans organized into groups and bands, which began to fight the Nazi occupation.

ANPI Faenza is concerned with nurturing and preserving the memory of the history of the area that is linked to the dramatic events of World War II and the protagonists of the Resistance that in the Romagna Faenza area, particularly near the Gothic Line, played a fundamental role toward liberation from Nazi-Fascism.

So many people and places were affected by the battles and events of those years that Franco and Angelo recounted in this film.
