Dear Massimo,

is there some more information on this film by Elio Piccon ? What is
it ?
I'm afraid my italian is not good enough to understand what an
'anteprima assoluta' is, and the 'absolute preview' in your
translation doesn't make it much clearer for me either..
Is it a film which was included in the Raine programme in 1951 ?

anxiously we are enveloped, you will easily know that I have
related nothing which is beyond belief.”
