Me ne frego (I Don't Care)


ne me frego cropped

 

This documentary tells the story of the fascist regime attempt to “reform” the Italian language. This is the story of a  little-known failed experiment. The documentary examines the words of Benito Mussolini, school-children indoctrination, and the repression of everything that was different from the  fascist ideal for the "new Italian" that had to adapt to the dogma to "believe, obey, fight".

 

Director: Vanni Gandolfo
