Letizia narrates the complexity and fascination of the old age.
It’s the story of a life which demonstrates how the concept of beauty is not strictly connected to esthetics, since you can be fascinating even at 96 years of age.

Director's notes

The movie was conceived starting from the idea of shooting a short movie entirely in the vertical format. To experiment this form I chose the documentary format and I decided to do it interviewing a person I had met in my career as director and that had struck me deeply: Letizia. The Vertical form becomes essential in the narration, since it allows, differently form the classic horizontal form, to concentrate the attention on few elements, in this case the protagonist Letizia and her alter ego in the past.
