More than one hundred films were shot in Venice.. But Venice is never just a movie set. Quickly, it becomes itself a protagonist of the films, a full character.
In this film, freely inspired by Irene Bignardi's book Storie di Cinema a Venezia, a young actress, Silvia, takes us on a journey to discover a Venice that is often poorly known. She returns to the mythical places of Senso, Othello, The Merchant of Venice, Chi lavora è perduto ... Through a series of interviews of directors and actors, Venice is revealed as a character of its own.
