Exterior Night

Exterior Night, three early evenings directed by Marco Bellocchio for The Apartment, Kavac Film and Rai Fiction in co-production with Arte France, it recounts the kidnapping of Aldo Moro from many points of view: those of those who were involved in various capacities and in some cases tried to save him, in others they pretended to do so, in others they openly boycotted all negotiations. They are the Moro family, the politicians, the priests, the Pope, the professors, the magicians, the forces of order, the secret services, the members of the Red Brigades at large and in prison, the mafiosi, the infiltrators: some of the six episodes that make up the fiction (they will all be available in live streaming and also on Rai Play) have titles that represent them. To follow, all the advances updated from time to time.
