  Andrea Doria


  "The shipwreck survivor makes the Andrea Doria come back to life" - IL SECOLO XIX
Plot: On July 25, 1956, the Italian passenger liner Andrea Doria was broadsided by the ship Stockholm near Nantucket Island. Pierette, a 9-year-old Italian girl emigrating to America with her grandparents, was among the 1660 survivors of the most catastrophic sea collision in peacetime history. For the 60th anniversary, Pierette returns to her native village of Pranzalito to document on film the hidden truth surrounding the tragedy. Interviews with survivors and naval experts throughout Italy and the U.S. are accompanied by re-enactments of Pierette’s departure from her village and her arrival to the New World. Archival footage from the Ansaldo shipyard accompanies the narration by some survivors and naval experts.
