To support the regional film production and to promote Le Marche treasures, Le Marche Film Commission (in partnership with Fondazione Marche Cultura, Regione Marche, Expirit and the Confederation of Professional Craftsmen – Cinema Division) started the tourist cluster Marche Cinema: a new world of experiences, routes and stories created to experience the most charming sets of the region personally, like never before.
This new journey stars with La Banda Grossi movie tour, an entirely Made in Le Marche independent film produced by Cinestudio in 2018, co-financed by Regione Marche and by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. Actually, La Banda Grossi was judged film of historical and cultural interest.
Directed by the filmmaker Claudio Ripalti, the film tells an old-bravery story made by the gang La Banda Grossi, leaded by a former day labourer, Terenzio Grossi. Around the year 1860, at the dawn of the Unification of Italy, the territory of Montefeltro was rocked by the adventures of seven insurgent bandits. They wanted the Unification to stop to release the local working class, which was starving due to the Sabaudian laws and to a corrupt system, making people live in conditions of extreme poverty.
