The recent Italian political elections reported through the life of the four youngest candidates on the list. From the nominations of the 4 young candidate to the endless election night, this is a representative Italian and European story. From the extreme Right to the extreme Left, this is a snapshot of the relationship between the new generations and politics.

“Politics? Zero! This was the most popular answer to our preparatory investigation into the relationship between young people and politics. This is why we turned to people who had made politics their daily obligation. We wanted to film the rituals of politics, rallies, television interviews, meetings with voting public. We wanted to find out just where politics evolve from youthful passion into a profession (and show-biz); to follow the electoral event in its creation and dismantling. In short, we were looking for m e a n i n g, a trace of the difference between politics as a performance and politics as public service.” (M. Coppola, G. Giommi, A. Piccinini)
