The Film: “Maìn. La casa della felicità” is presented to the press

Rome (Italy). Today, May 3, in Rome, at the auditorium of USMI (Italian Union of Major Superiors), the press conference for the presentation of the film “Maìn La casa della felicità”, [Maria. The House of Happiness] took place . Among those taking part were Sr. Caterina Cangià, producer and script writer of the film, Simone Spada, director, and Gaia Insenga, the actress who plays Maria Domenica Mazzarello in the film. The conference was facilitated by Professor Augusto d’Angelo.

After viewing the trailer, in a serene and relaxed atmosphere the speakers told some anecdotes regarding the filming. «Depth and interpersonal relationships are the elements on which the film is based - Sr. Caterina said in synthesis. In the making of the film certain themes that are relevant for today were highlighted. Much space is given to sharing, communication, interpersonal relationships. Above all, this is what we bring out in the film: friendship and attention to the little ones».

«Making a film is always a journey, the director, Simone Spada, explained – and when one goes on a journey of this kind, there are moments of fragility and moments of great joy. One moment of fragility was when it was proposed to me to make the film, since I did not know the story of Domenica Mazzarello. The story of her life impressed my very much, a story that begins from littleness and becomes great. Maria Domenica was a minute, small woman who came from a little village of Piedmont, Mornese, and had the strength to create a reality that, today, exists throughout the world. How can one interpret a person like that? I got my answer during my visits to Mornese. It is there that I understood the path I had to take. One of the most intense moments, instead, was when, during the scene of the arrival of Don Bosco in the village, in which we were at least 200 persons, Sr. Caterina said to me: “I feel like I am at one of my summer camps” and I remember this sentence with great joy, because it highlights the creation of a truly Salesian atmosphere».

Relationships and sharing are the aspects that can be found both in the film and in its making. «It was an experience, more than a film - Gaia Insenga tells us- because lively and deep human relationships were born, which I believe will not end. Besides, we enjoyed ourselves very much during the filming, in spite of the tiredness and all the work, the atmosphere was always joyful and laughs were never lacking».

The conference continued with some questions from those present, which the speakers responded to in a clear and complete way.

L`esperienza vissuta a Mornese per la festa della Madre il 25 e 26 aprile ci ha rese maggiormente ansiose di poter ammirare l`opera cinematografica. Intanto ci congratuliamo con Sr.Caterina Cangià e con l`Isituto delle FMA che ha promosso e voluto questo omaggio alla "nostra" Madre e confondatrice che abbiamo imparato a conoscere, amare in modo approfondito e che ammiriamo per la gioiosa semplicità di vita. Ci spiace solo dovere attenderne la visione perchè ad agosto nessuna di noi è in collegio.... peccato! Le Universitarie di Pisa
