The film tells the story of Pier Vittorio Tondelli through his words and his books, reread by seven writers of today, born in the very ’80s that Tondelli traversed and described. The film premiered at the latest Rome Film Festival.

Solitude, It’s That is a docu-fiction focusing on the writer Pier Vittorio Tondelli, dead on December 1991, at the age of 36, due to AIDS. Tondelli is known not only for being one of Europe’s greatest storytellers, but also for being one of the sharpest voices of his time. He was the writer of Altri libertini (Other Libertines), his first work and a cult novel among young people of the 80s, subjected to seizure in L’Aquila for obscenity and outrage against the public morals of the time. The film sets out in search of the places where the author had the opportunity to live and tells the story of Tondelli through his words and his books, reread by seven writers of today, born in the very ‘80s that Tondelli traversed and described. The film premiered at the latest Rome Film Festival.

“Tondelli made himself a live record of his time, he embraced the culture of the night and the interdisciplinary nature of various artistic forms, cinema, music, theatre, fashion, comics, all elements that characterised his language but also strongly conditioned that of the narrators born after him.” (A. Adriatico)
