Sergio Rubini has just returned to the set to shoot I Fratelli De Filippo, a biographical film dedicated to the mythical Neapolitan family of actors and theatrical authors.
An iconic family of the Neapolitan theater is honored in the film The De Filippo brothers, directed by Sergio Rubini, whose filming has just started in Naples, and will continue between Campania and Lazio.
La trama de I fratelli De Filippo
It is the beginning of the twentieth century, the three brothers Peppino, Titina and Eduardo, live with their beautiful and young mother, Luisa De Filippo. There is no father in the family, or rather he hides in the shoes of “uncle” Eduardo Scarpetta, the most famous, rich and acclaimed actor and playwright of his time. Scarpetta, while not recognizing the three natural children, introduced them to the world of theater as children. When the great actor dies, his legitimate children share his inheritance, while Titina, Eduardo and Peppino are entitled to nothing. To the three young men, however, “uncle” Scarpetta passed on a special gift, his great talent, which instead did not touch his legitimate son Vincenzo, also an actor and playwright, who became the owner of his father’s company. The redemption from the painful family history passes for the formation of the De Filippo trio, a dream cherished for years by Eduardo and his brothers and finally realized, overcoming difficulties and conflicts. That of the De Filippo is the story of a family wound that turns into art. And of three young people, who, by joining forces, give life to a completely new way of telling reality with a look that reaches into the future.
