Don Vitaliano

by Paolo Pisanelli


Don Vitaliano della Sala, a no-global priest, left wing, a rebel, a zapatist, a barricadiero priest… the newspapers and TV’s often speak about him, giving him colourful labels. Don Vitaliano, parish of Sant’ Angelo a Scala, a small town with 600 souls in the province of Avellino, is one of the most famous Italian priests not only for his commitment as a pacifist active in the no-global movement, but also for his battles for the reconstruction of the churches in Irpinia after the earthquake, for the actions of civil disobedience conducted with huge media resonance during the G8 in Genova. The film follows don Vitaliano in the confused days of preparation and participation at the G8 of Genova, but also in the more intimate and discrete  moments of the life in his little parish he is so fond of.
