Domitiana Road by Montesarchio, Romano

Story

"Where there is no road there is no civilization."

The Domitiana is an ancient Roman road, on the border between the provinces of Naples and Caserta. Traditionally it was built for leisure, to give Romans acces to this part of the empire for relaxation. Nowadays the noblest of roads has become the very worse. Because of the large number of immigrants, the area is considered as an outpost of the so-called "third world" within the rich and developed West. It is a place where impoverishment, social suffering, criminality and prostitution prevail. The documentary film tells the history of this road and how it has turned into a no man's land where everything is the opposite of what it could and should be.
