Directed by Giacomo Campiotti, shooting will begin next spring and will take place in  Rome and in Trento, her hometown.

“The strength of a someone  like Chiara  today is to make us look at the other person as a possibility, a gift, a bearer of a seed of truth to be valued and loved, however distant the other person   may be. Universal fraternity  as a premise for  dialogue and peace”. We read in the press release in which Luca Barbareschi, producer for Eliseo Fiction, and Rai Fiction say they are “proud” to announce that a TV movie about Chiara Lubich will be made for Italian television.

Directed by Giacomo Campiotti, shooting will start next spring and will take place in Rome and in Trento, her  hometown.

The press release  goes on to explain that “Chiara is very young when, in the years of the Second World War, she feels called to build a better world, a more united world. From that time on  she  set sherself the goal of building bridges between people , whatever their race, nation or religious faith. The strength of a  someone  like Chiara today is to make us look at the other  person as a possibility, a gift, a bearer of a seed of truth to be valued and loved, however distant the other person  may be. Universal fraternity as a premise for dialogue and peace. Chiara’s message does not belong only to the Catholic world,  she  has contributed to raising the profile of women and their role even ,  and above all , outside the ecclesiastical institution.
