The Prince of Rome – Marco Giallini Edoardo Falcone



Transport to Rome – in Roman dialect – Dickens’ Christmas Carol, with a clear homage to Magni’s cinema set in the time of the Pope King and you’ll find The Prince of Rome by duo Giallini-Falcone. In the cast Giulia Bevilacqua, Filippo Timi, Sergio Rubini, Denise Tantucci, Antonio Bannò, Liliana Bottone, Massimo De Lorenzo, Andrea Sartoretti, Giuseppe Battiston. The film will be released in theaters on November 17.

The director returns to directing as in I am Father Christmas Marco Giallini: an impeccable Roman Scrooge, less hilarious and flamboyant than the unforgettable Marchese del Grillo di Sordi. But always up for the joke, in the all-Roman sense of comedy, struggling with its ghosts, very different from those of Dickens’ Christmas. On the other hand Falcone himself explains it during a press conference, that he gave the Christmas theme in the last film with Gigi Proietti.

Giallini is The Prince of Rome: in the synopsis the comic meaning of the film

Year of grace 1829 – we are in Rome, the Rome of Pope King Bartolomeo Proietti (Marco Giallini) – from an orphan he became one of the richest men (cravattaro, as they say in the capital he does not collect! ) the whole city on which the winds of republican freedom blow. It has everything you could want except rank and is willing to buy it – like indulgences – with shields. The offer comes from Prince Accoramboni (a masterful Sergio Rubini, always impeccable in period films), full of funny people, from whom he would obtain the coveted title of nobility thanks to his marriage to the princess, blessed by the pope dying. But to change his mind, it will be his personal ghosts – historical and linked to the ancient Roman world – Giordano Bruno (Filippo Timi), Pope Borgia (Giuseppe Battiston) and Beatrice Cenci (Denise Tantucci).

Ready to reveal the truth, her origins and her love (Giulia Bevilacqua). Three mysterious presences evoked by the protagonist who, like a miser, tries to recover his money. But in keeping with tradition, these souls will continue to wander the streets of the Eternal City for centuries. Able to guide him from Rome’s past to his future – death at the hands of (Andrea Sartoretti) would await him – through his past. All in the background the beauty of the prints of Bartolomeo Pinelli and a strong musicality that accompanies the dialect, like the sonnets of Belli.

Tribute to Rome and the Magni del Papa Re

“I have always wanted to make a film set in the Rome of the Pope King. This desire originated in my childhood when, one distant summer many years ago, my mother took me to an arena to see Dans the year of the Lord” – he explained the director Edoardo Falcone during the press conference illustrating the reference to the “lives of Luigi Magni” capable of generating “a passion for the history and traditions of my city, which does not still hasn’t abandoned me.” But it is evident, as stated at the beginning of the credits, also by the narrative stratagem of reproposing Dickens’ Christmas carol in the language used by the great Italian cinema that told of the papal era of the 19th century.

“I liked it, but it was difficult to make a film in costumes during confinement” – declared Giallini who confirmed that he had not only watched Sordi, Gassman or Manfredi (actor among the most used for the films of the time and of the same Magni, editor’s note) but to “what you have observed over the years, in which you have absorbed the Roman spirit – with all its models – but also to the people because as they say ‘you are Roman or you are from Viterbo'”.
A film that feeds on musicality, that of the Roman dialect, a language that seems improvised even when it is not, capable of making the joke even in a tragic moment. Like the staged doctor scene where Bartholomew takes the Pope’s doctor to the son of Sor Augusto – his benefactor – to help his sick son: “He’s the Pope’s doctor, he’s a good one!” May the Pope be dead! “. Forget he is King, even the Romans – maybe only them – can joke about the Pope.
