The Festival

In recent years, even the most important international film festivals are devoting due attention to documentaries as they allow you to explore expressive territories free and unencumbered by the strict codes of cinematic canons. DocuDonna introduces a new appointment dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of the documentary made by women into the calendar of Italian and international festivals. A heritage of images, sensibilities and points of view, disseminated into a cultural industry dominated by men. DocuDonna aims to call attention to a cutting-edge genre of film production: the documentary as an original and innovative language often underground and little known.

Concept

An event to create new perspectives of productions and collaborations and to “Make Network”: to confront each other, to meet, to share ideas and experiences.
Particular attention will be given to those works that can stimulate reflection on social issues such as inclusion, equal rights, the elimination of gender differences and economic inequalities, the overcoming of sexual and religious discrimination.

The Festival is aimed at directors who intend to present their works as their own personal vision of the world. An international festival of women’s documentaries to attract many film lovers, especially of the documentary genre, as well as lovers of art and beauty in general.

Massa Marittima

Located in the province of Grosseto, Massa Marittima is an ancient city lying on the hills and protected by a well-preserved city wall with ups and downs of narrow streets with a medieval atmosphere that still breathes among the most important buildings of its extraordinary historic center. Massa Marittima is one of the most important urbanistic-architectural complexes in Tuscany, and Piazza Garibaldi, which overlooks the beautiful cathedral of San Cerbone, the Palazzo del Podestà, the Palazzo del Comune and the Loggia del Mercato, is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Italy. A magical and timeless place.

Palazzo dell'Abbondanza

The Palazzo dell’Abbondanza is the building in the historic center recovered by the City of Massa and became the site of the most important exhibitions and conferences in the city.
It is a structure built in the fourteenth century, as an elevation of the underlying Source of ‘Abundance, famous for the thirteenth-century tree of Fecundity, frescoed on one of the two tanks.
The intervention was particularly complex also for the delicate position of the building; in the realization of the work, the designers managed to merge the various “identities” designed for the Palace: that of a technologically advanced multipurpose space and that of a modern complex, stylistically accurate, well blended with the historical-architectural context from which it is surrounded.
