By Center for Italian Modern Art
A screening of Giuliano Montaldo’s “Sacco e Vanzetti” surrounded by works of Italian Modern art!
The tenth and final film in our Staging Injustice Film Series, Sacco e Vanzetti (Sacco & Vanzetti, 1971) is directed by Giuliano Montaldo and stars Gian Maria Volontè, Riccardo Cucciolla, and Cyril Cusack.
The film will be introduced by Prof. Teresa Fiore, the Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies at Montclair State University.
Synopsis (via IMDB): In 1920, the anarchist Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco (Riccardo Cucciolla) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (Gian Maria Volonté) are sentenced to death, falsely accused of a robbery and murder. Indeed they are condemned due to their political beliefs, in one of the most shameful and hypocrite judgments of the human history.
