, among others) and Massimiliano Virgilio, and is the story of kids dabbling in criminality and facing a world that’s much bigger than them, a story suspended between good and evil, full of social references and condemnation, but also a universal story that is full of humanity and love.

“It will be a film on the importance of knowing how to choose which side to be on, to make today’s teenagers understand how important it is to say no, at the right time”, says  Amedeo Letizia, a former actor (one of the stars of generational series I ragazzi del muretto) and film producer, who is originally from Casal di Principe, a small town sadly known for being the undisputed centre of the Caserta-based Camorra. “Kids from Casale, but from elsewhere too, teetering on the border between legality and illegality, and pulled in by false legends, often find themselves making the wrong choices. But they should know that once they step foot in some worlds, there’s no turning back”. 

Nato a Casal di Principe is a Cinemusa production with Rai Cinema, and is being produced by Amedeo Letizia with Mariella Li Sacchi. Filming will last six weeks and will take place in Casal di Principe, San Cipriano D'Aversa, Villa di Briano, Castel Volturno, Casapesenna, Rome and Barcelona.
