Still from the film Il cattivo poeta


The year is 1936. Giovanni Comini, the youngest Federal in Fascist Italy, is summoned to Rome for a delicate mission: to monitor aging national poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, whose increasingly restless behavior Mussolini fears could damage his alliance with Nazi Germany. However, after spending time with D'Annunzio, Comini finds himself torn between loyalty to the Party and his fascination with the poet, who will put his burgeoning career at risk.

The film is inspired by the book "D'Annunzio and the Fascist Octopus" by Italian journalist and writer Roberto Festorazzi.
