Viva L’Italia 

“Viva l’Italia is a documentary made after the event, trying to figure out what happened. I
tried to place myself in front of the events of a century ago, the way a documentarist
would have done who had the good fortune to follow Garibaldi’s campaign with his
camera.” - Roberto Rossellini
To celebrate the centenary of Italy, the Italian government commissioned Rossellini to
make a biopic of Giuseppe Garibaldi, one that would follow his exploits with ‘the
Thousand’ and their role in the country’s unification. Rossellini approached the film as he
had Francesco, giullare di Dio, presenting the main character in neo-realist mode, as
though making a documentary.
Restored by Arrow Films from the original negative, this disc marks the first UK home
video release of Viva l’Italia in any format, allowing English-speaking audience to
discover another Rossellini classic.
