Renato Carpentieri and Andrea Renzi star as brothers in Santa Lucia - Production / Funding - Italy

Filming on Marco Chiappetta’s first work, a Teatri Uniti and RiverStudio production, has wrapped in Naples. Shooting has wrapped on Santa Lucia, the debut work by the 29-year-old Neapolitan screenwriter and director Marco Chiappetta. Led by Renato Carpentieri and Andrea Renzi who are cast as two brothers, the film is produced by Teatri Uniti – the long-standing theatre company directed by Toni Servillo which has supported cinema productions such as Morte di un matematico napoletano and L’amore molesto by Mario Martone, as well as One Man Up and The Consequences of Love by Paolo Sorrentino – together with RiverStudio. The film recounts the return to Naples, following forty years spent in Buenos Aires, of Roberto, a writer who is now blind, of his meeting with his brother Lorenzo and of the troubling past which emerges from their childhood memories, set against the backdrop of the city as we’ve never seen.
