Tale's sparks in the jungle of cities La paura siCura directed by Gabriele Vacis La paura siCura is a documentary film by Gabriele Vacis, in which the director describes the fears of the Italians. Set in six cities (Settimo, Schio, Genoa, Ravenna, Catania, Montegranaro), the film is a kind of 'seismograph' of Italian society, thanks to the narrative formula of interviews and the power of the close-up. The essay points out the analogies with the aesthetics of documentary by Kieslowski and focuses especially on the last sequence of the film, dedicated to the outskirt of Catania. In this sequence the district of Librino becomes a kind of symbolic place, where the border between fear and courage is very ambiguous.
