Abstract

Numerous material in the archives, to date unpublished, document some Italo-sovietic cinematographic co-productions, the first of which is Italian Good People (Attack and Retreat). First appearing in 1964, the film had been in preparation since the spring of 1961. The almost four years of work lead us to assume that there were disruptions and misunderstandings, as reconstructed in the papers preserved in Moscow and Rome. The radical differences in the different versions of the script, the meeting minutes in which said scripts were reviewed (and meticulously agreed upon) by both parties and other production documents reveal many ‘curious’ details. The cooperation was in fact far from ‘peaceful’ and the not always easy progress underscores the political and cultural cross-section of the two countries.
