“Diabolik”, the new movie by the Manetti Bros. will be set in Courmayeur. The brothers recently carried out an on site visit to the Aosta Valley looking for locations. The movie was written by the Manetti brothers, scriptwriter Michelangelo La Neve and Mario Gomboli, director of the Astorina and historic curator of the comic strip subjects and will be filmed next fall.
Filming began at the end of April on the documentary about Pierlucio Tinazzi, the safety officer at the Italian Mount Blanc Tunnel company who, during the fire in 1999, lost his life trying to save the people trapped in the tunnel. The movie is produced by the Milan-based company Section 80 and directed by the New York director Zachary Heinzerling.
