mysterious crimes would have not happened in Murano, in the new Republic,
led by the ruthless Doge, Anselmo Biaberini.
Zero-budget full-length movie film made in Veneto and present at the Venice
Film Market of the 70th Venice International Film Festival.
Impossible Venice (90’) directed by William Carrer, with Francesco Wolf,
Davide Strava e Roberto Vertieri. Set in a 1987 impossible Venice, this
featured film tells about a new Republic born from the Venetian revolt against
Napoleon Bonaparte, and led by a new Doge, Anselmo Biaberini. Under his
dictatorship, the inquiries to find out the instigator of a series of mysterious
murders involving several glass-masters that happened in Murano, are
Head of the inquiry is Leonardo Rizzi (Francesco Wolf), Provveditor Capo de
la Quarantia al Civil e al Criminal dello Stato Veneto who, with his Fanti,
Avanzi (Davide Strava) and Giustini (Roberto Vertieri), has to constantly
compare the two contrasting worlds that characterize the Republic: on the
one hand the dictatorship; on the other the hidden world of the rebels who
delude themselves to fight for the ideals of freedom and independence.
Weaves of personal stories and intersections of both worlds, will lead the
epilogue and the unveiling of the much sought-motive, who turns out to not be
part of the real world.
