Paul VI
Synopsis
Paul VI  led the Catholic Church through one of the most difficult periods in its history: from the Fascist regime and World War II to the constitution of the Italian Republic, from the Second Vatican Council to the protests and the terrorist attacks of the 1960s and 1970s.
He was the Pope who  began to visit  the dioceses of the 5 continents, like no Pope had ever done before.
He was the Pope who opened a dialogue among religions: for the first time a Pope visited  Jerusalem, the Holy Land.
A journey into the past of both Italy and the world, in the midst of wars and continuous upheavals.
An exciting picture, covering fifty years of history that changed the Catholic Church and the world.
Paul VI is a story that draws emotions from history itself, wisely mixing stunning reconstructions and real film footage.
