Rosselini during the 50’s was the first and then also Cavani, Pasolini and Zeffirelli, ended in 1988 and still Cavani with the American actor Mickey Rourke. Now Linklater tries again – a democrat producer like Michael Moore, author of Prima dell’alba and Fast Food nation – and Hawke. the first clappers is in 2009, the Umbrian stopping place was to choose the location, if all will be ok. Before visiting the Falls, the producer and the actor visited Assisi, Norcia, the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle in Ferentillo, Narni and the studios of Papigno where Roberto Benigni filmed La vita è bella.

The well-known music did a concert and shooted the advertising for “the fire-proof campaign 2008” organized by the State Forest Corps with the Ministry for the agricolture, forestal and food politics; it is already available in the national televisions. Together with the band, another special man of the spectacle , Pippo Baudo who invites people to call 1515 (fire-proof emergency number) when they see the fire in the wood. The choice of the Falls as a place for the advertising has been decided by the Forestal Corps; more information in their web site: “the water and not the fire is the main element of the information campaign” and sensitiveness for the prevention of the wood fires 2008 did by the State Forestal Corps. The wonderful view of Marmore Falls as a natural setting of the advertising is a positive message and point out the strength of the water on the fire which represents destruction and death, if out of control”.
