Filming on “Il Ladro di Giorni” by Guido Lombardi, former winner of the Premio Venice – Lion of the Future “Luigi De Laurentiis” debut work award in 2011 for “Là-bas – A criminal education” has crossed the whole peninsula with the assistance of three film commissions (Trentino, Campania and Puglia).

The film, written by Guido Lombardi, Luca De Benedittis and Marco Gianfreda is the adaptation of a screenplay that received the “Premio Solinas – Storie per il cinema-Stories for cinema” award in 2007, and is produced by Nicola Giuliano, Francesca Cima and Carlotta Calori for Indigo Film and by Gaetano Di Vaio for Bronx Film with the support of the Trentino Film Commission, Film Commission Regione Campania and the Apulia Film Commission.
It tells the story of Vincenzo who, after his release from prison, goes to retrieve his son Salvo who, in the meantime, has one to live in Trentino with his uncle and aunt. Father and son, who are almost strangers, set off to drive to the south of Italy where Vincenzo has a mission to carry out. The film stars Riccardo Scamarcio in the leading role, Massimo Popolizio and little Augusto Zazzaro making his feature film debut.
