Good Buy Roma

a film by Gaetano Crivaro / Margherita Pisano
ITA / Documentary / 2011 / 48 mi

Abandoned for years, closed, protected and threatened by a high wall enclosed by barbed wire , covered with so much dust, the building in Via del Porto Fluviale 12 was a public ownership military warehouse, One of the many skeletons that sprout like mushrooms in the cityscape. It was, because nowadays it is something else.
Over the years and through much work, the dust has been banished, the degradation process stopped and life has taken its place.

From 6 June 2003 about 100 families, coming from three continents, live in this former-skeleton. In 8 years about 40 children were born. So the old barracks has become not only a home but almost a small town.
