Milano 2015 is an anthology film that probes the soul of this city in a year when the eyes of the world are upon Italy. A fresco that depicts Milan from its entrails to its skyline, it's a stirring narrative blending echoes from the past and the brisk pace of life in the present, a tale that links seemingly unrelated worlds. From the shelters to the country's tallest skyscraper; from shuttered theaters to the inimitable La Scala; from the city seen by the next generation to the singular perspective of a monastery, six directors, with their own distinct sensibilities, walked the streets, studied faces, overheard conversations and put it all on film, to interpret this rich and varied urban civilization.

Elio
La capitale morale
screenplay Elio
cinematography Marco Sgorbati
editing Matteo Mossi, Carlotta Cristiani
sound Giovanni Isgrò
with Wei Dong
voice Shi Yang Shi
"Milan is the city I love the most, the one where I was born and raised. In the last twenty years it's lost much of its human, moral and cultural capital, which earlier generations of Milan's residents had left to us. The film bears witness to this decline and at the same time makes an appeal for its rebirth." [Elio]
ELIO is a singer-songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist, as well as a stage actor. La capitale morale marks his debut as a film director.

Roberto Bolle
La fabbrica dei sogni
screenplay Roberto Bolle
cinematography Italo Petriccione
editing Giorgio Garini
sound Giovanni Isgrò
"I came to Milan at the age of eleven, and for my entire adolescence my idea of the city coincided with the spaces of La Scala. Over the years, spending my whole day inside the theater, I became familiar with its every corner and every sound." [Roberto Bolle]
Star dancer at La Scala and Principal Dancer at the American Ballet Theatre in New York, ROBERTO BOLLE has performed at all of the world's major theaters and with top-tier dance companies.

Silvio Soldini
Tre Milano
screenplay Silvio Soldini
cinematography Sabina Bologna
editing Carlotta Cristiani
sound Giovanni Isgrò
with Armando Bonechi, Marco Pho Grassi, Kibra Sebhat
"A tribute to Milan, my hometown, as I sought out its most intimate sides, the music of its environments, its changing cityscape." [Silvio Soldini]
Since 1990, when SILVIO SOLIDINI's first feature film, The Peaceful Air of the West, came out, he has made numerous documentaries and eight more features, both drama films and comedies, which have made him a favorite of audiences and critics alike, in Italy and abroad.

Walter Veltroni
Magica e veloce
screenplay Walter Veltroni
cinematography Davide Manca
editing Gabriele Gallo
sound Giovanni Isgrò
with Sante Gaiardoni, Alberto Masi
"Milan is Italy's most modern city, yet history can be found on every corner. It's just this contrast that inspires my segment, which plays a symbol of the future that's growing and asserting itself - Isozaki's skyscraper City Life - against the stubborn resistance of the Vigorelli Velodrome." [Walter Veltroni]
Once former mayor of Rome and member of parliament WALTER VELTRONI left political office, he made his directorial debut in 2013 with the documentary Quando c'era Berlinguer, followed by I bambini sanno in 2015.

Cristiana Capotondi

screenplay Cristiana Capotondi
cinematography Marco Sgorbati
editing Giorgio Garini
sound Giovanni Isgrò
with Ferruccio De Bortoli
Claudia Ruggerini "Marisa"
Laura Wronowska "Kiky"
"Milan isn't ‘my' city, and I like it that way: there's love and respect between us, but we keep our distance, a sensual distance, a yearning to make contact and get to know each other...when I meet Milan she smiles at me; Milan always smiles when you recognize her." [Cristiana Capotondi]
Actress CRISTIANA CAPOTONDI was only twelve when she appeared in the TV series Amico Mio. Since then she has had many television and film roles. Solferino 28 marks her directorial debut.

Giorgio Diritti
Cielo
screenplay Giorgio Diritti
cinematography Roberto Cimatti
editing Giorgio Diritti
sound Giovanni Isgrò
with le suore Carmelitane scalze
voice Pia Engleberth
"To me Milan was also the joy of discovering and understanding the city, wondering what's behind the facade, how the city breathes, and guessing what it really needs." [Giorgio Diritti]
GIORGIO DIRITTI is a writer and director as well as editor. In 2005 he made his feature directorial debut with The Wind Blows Round. He has written and directed several documentaries, short films and television programs. In 2014 he wrote his first novel, Noi due.
