    Drama, Historical

    THE MARKET is a ‘historical’ film, a ‘costume’ drama set in the hot summer of 2011, in the midst of the Berlusconi era. The life of a quiet corner market is shaken when the Municipality decides to close it down. The only political organisation that people can turn to is the local section of the Democratic Party, which is separated from the market by a concrete wall, built to allow the construction of the subway. This will be a paradoxical and unique day, funny and dramatic at the same time, in which everything becomes a satirical paradigm of recent Italian history.
