THE APARTMENT, KAVAC FILM
with RAI FICTION
1978, Italy is torn apart by a war: in the history of a Western country, the first government supported by a Communist Party (PCI) is about to take office in an epoch-making alliance with the Nation’s traditional bastion of conservatism, the Christian Democrats (DC). Aldo Moro, President of the DC, is the main proponent of this accord.
On the very same day of the swearing ceremony of this new government formation, March 16, 1978, Moro is kidnapped in an ambush that leaves his entire police escort dead on the street.
Moro’s imprisonment will last 55 days: 55 days of hope, fear, negotiation, failure, good intentions and wicked acts. 55 days ending with his corpse abandoned inside a car in the center of Rome, exactly half way between the headquarters of the DC and the PCI.
