Bruno Bozzetto

This month the Castelli Animati Festival celebrates the great talent of Italian animator and filmaker Bruno Bozzetto. I guess it'a bit of a paradox that Bozzetto is celebrated in Italy where they don't allow him to continue to produce his films. Italian tv is finally broadcasting his three animated films, after many many years of silence. Australian and Japanese tv, on the other hand, broadcast Bozzetto's Allegro Non Troppo" film at least once a year and his Signor Rossi shorts are released in Germany. When will Italy release his shorts films? I don't think they'll ever do it!
