Very little is known about Lazzaro Felice, only that it has been written by the director herself and is a story about contrasts - summer versus winter and the countryside versus the city. The protagonists are Adriano Tardioli and Luca Chikovani, two young beggars, singers, musicians and Youtubers. In addition to amateur performers selected from the nearly two thousand people who auditioned are Nicoletta Braschi, Sergi Lopez, Alba Rohrwacher, Tommaso Ragno, Natalino Balasso, Gala Othero Winter and Leonardo Nigro.
